Telnet does not exist in cloudera vm

Hello,

 

I was doing some   exercise related to Flume in cloudera vmware (5.5.0) and found that telnet does not exist or not included in the path.

Can someone please let me know the location or how to install telnet in vm?

Partial stdout is listed below

Thanks in advance

=================================================================================

[cloudera@quickstart home]$ telnet localhost 44444
bash: telnet: command not found
[cloudera@quickstart home]$ which telnet
/usr/bin/which: no telnet in (/usr/local/firefox:/sbin:/usr/java/jdk1.7.0_67-cloudera/bin:/usr/local/apache-ant/apache-ant-1.9.2/bin:/usr/local/apache-maven/apache-maven-3.0.4/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/home/cloudera/bin)
[cloudera@quickstart home]$

`sudo yum install telnet` should do the trick. The VM is based on CentOS 6, so any CentOS 6 tools should work even if they're not included in the base image or Cloudera software.
