Yes, you can use ICS SSL for telnet, most of the protocols like HTTP,
POP3, FTP control, etc, are telnet based, sending textual command lines
back and forward.  

SSH was originally implemented on Unix/Linux for remote command line
access, but it is less secure than SSL since there are no certificates to
prove identity.

If you are designing client and server, forget SSH and use SSL, but
beware you'll need to generate certificates for all servers.
