One line with an extra trailing quote? This counts as too localized IMO and should be closed|deleted.

comment Telnet : How to get [user@hostname userFolder]$
The problem lies with your phrasing, which you've just repeated there: when do I get it like this? Are you asking how to configure your current shell to prompt like that, or are you asking what shell prompts like that by default, or under what conditions a shell would prompt like that?

@barlop I think it should be put on hold immediately: it's unclear as currently worded. It can be resumed once the asker comes back and edits it.

comment .mil zone DNS requests does not resolved form Russia

@barlop Neither of the two currently-approved edits change that part of the asker's phrasing. Until they (gender was not stated!) reply to your comment or edit the question to clarify, myself and many others will continue to assume that they're asking how to customize their prompt. The question might also be closed as too unclear or possibly as a duplicate.

Don't use telnet; use ssh instead.

@barlop You can simply do PS1="[\u@\h \W]\$ " (variable assignments aren't commands in shell scripting).

$PS1 doesn't need to be exported.
