Using TELNET for Passthru --Bypassing Signon? Published by: Bob Cozzi on 20 Oct 2011 view comments(2)

We use TELNET xxx to jump onto another box for the Command Line.

I have a requirement to allow a user to select a menu option and have them presented with a Menu that exists on another box.

I created a menu option that runs this:

TELNET RMTSYS(TESTSYS) RMTUSER(TSTUSR) RMTPWD(rosebud) RMTINLPGM(WHATEVER)

Up until now, I never used RMTUSER or RMTPWD. I was under the impression, however, that using those parameters would mean the signon screen would NOT be displayed. But what is happening is the signon screen IS displayed.

Is there a way to use TELNET to pass through transparently to the other system? I really don't want to make them signon again for testing.
