    To find IP address, try this:
    # ifconfig on your shell prompt. there will be two(or more) groups of information listed. eth0 represents your ethernet card. and the parameter inet addr: xxx.xxx.xx.x represents your IP. The second interface lo represents your local machine and is refered as loopback interface.

    For windows try : ipconfig

    Telnet is a protocol that is used to connect to a remote computer, login to it, and execute commands on that computer. As a matter of fact you can telnet into any port of the remote computer and start issuing commands. Just you have to take care of the respective protocols.

    You can't really use telnet utility for data transfer just like that... You should go in for more specialised utilites that can handle appropriate protocols.

    For data transfer you can use $ ftp utility. But these utilities are fast becoming a thing of past and are being replaced by their secure varients. Try looking about ssh and sftp
