ToolDaemon is the only software that gives you a telnet server on your Mac Classic OS.
It gives you access to the Macintosh Programmer's Workshop (MPW) shell commands, thus in addition to use the MPW dev environment (which is way above my head:), gives the abilities to create, delete, move, copy files, launch app and shutdown the computer and many other tools from the MPW command line.

I post the app here with the authorisation of the author. And here also the GitHub sources page as he made it open source :
