 shell command using telnet

Don't hassle with this "sendkeys"-style programming !
Telnet isn't really the way to got.
Look for another protocol called "reexec" (remote execute) and/or "rsh"
(remote shell), which
are special things for just executing command(s) on other Hosts.
Depending on what you are trying to do, have a look at the several upcoming
internet controls ...
