VRf-Telnet window automatic logon w/name&password

Question asked by VRFuser on Aug 21, 1997

I would guess that the PASSWORD input does some special tweaking of the
socket.  I assume that you are using the to/from socket to talk to port
23 on the SUN.  If so, you may want to spy on the connection, both from
VEE and with a standard telnet program and look for differences.  The
program I use is called teerelay.  It's available from many places, including, also know as "The HP-UX Software Arcive
at UW-Madison". I've also placed a copy on
