Your *nix system should be firewalled.  If not install Shorewall.

In /etc/inetd.conf comment out
#telnet stream  tcp  nowait  telnetd  /usr/sbin/tcpd    /usr/sbin/in.telnetd
and add this.
telnet  stream  tcp  nowait  eas  /usr/sbin/tcpd  /usr/sbin/telnetd -E bin/bash

In the Oberon subsystem, a console is opened without a password.

Desktops.OpenDoc telnet://localhost

There do the linux command.

ls -ta /tmp | head -22

ls -ta /path/to/any/directory | head -22


A2 also has Tools > Serial Terminal which should connect to localhost 
and accept commands.

Regards,                ... P.L.
