Using java to telnet

I'm looking for the code to use a java applet, running on a
web server, to be able to connect via telnet to some
computer.  I must be able to supply the telnet address and
the port.  I then want to sent some string to the
connection (ie simulate keyboard entry) and be able to
receive the answer from the server.

Any help / comments ?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is a java telnet client with code and explanation at

Note that they use it to connect to a chat server, so you may want to change its look.

 hope this helps
