Re: Scripting telnet client logins.

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---
#!/usr/bin/expect --
set timeout 20
spawn telnet server.myhost.com
expect "ogin:"
send "myusername\r"
expect "assword:"
send "mypasword\r"
---end login.expect--cut here----
