    Dear All,
    Can anyone please suggest me how to invoke telnet using DOS batch files?
    I tried giving :

    for ex:
    telnet 10.10.230.15 john/sam

    The above is invoking telnet but it's prompting for username and password?

    Please helpme out....

    Thanks in advance

    The problem is that you can not give unix password along with the username just like an oracle password. The telnet syntax is:

    telnet -l user host

    and then you need to give the password.

    Hi,
    I think I can Answer ur question...
    you cant directly call the telnet command from batch file...
    but you can do like this by using Windows Script...
    I have done this personally and it worked out...
    -------------------------------------------------------
    var Shell=WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell");
    Shell.Run("telnet 10.20.10.20");
    WScript.Sleep(100);
    Shell.SendKeys("username");
    Shell.SendKeys("{ENTER}");
    WScript.Sleep(100);
    Shell.SendKeys("password");
    Shell.SendKeys("{ENTER}");
    WScript.Sleep(100);
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Save this as .js file and run it
    you will definitely connect to telnet... Hope you understood...

    This thread is almost 6 years old. I think the OP got tired of waiting.
