That's a client side issue as you've most likely got different versions
of PuTTY on each system. sshd is pretty light on resource use -- even
better if you're using dropbear. So unless you're using antiquated
hardware or don't care about sending your credentials in plaintext,
telnet's only useful for debugging. I've found netcat (nc) to be more
useful since it can listen as well as connect.
