You must have never upgraded from 10.0 to 10.0.1 or later, or else
manually enabled telnet by editing /etc/inetd.conf.  Telnet was just
in 10.0 as a temporary measure; before (Public Beta) and since, the
remote login option turns on the SSH server.

Try curl -O instead of wget - which was replaced because of licensing
