I'm not 100% sure this is what you are asking (you just want to automatically log in right?), but you can try an expect script (usual warnings about having a password in a script lying around apply).
---begin login.expect--cut here---
set timeout 20
spawn telnet server.myhost.com
---end login.expect--cut here----
