@echo off
telnet hostname


AFAIK, there is no way to automate login (send username and password) from DOS to UNIX, 'cause UNIX's telnetd (login) always reads from the tty.

Other than telenet , there are some clients that can connect
to UNIX from DOS automaticaly :
i know rsh in the LanWorkPlace tcp suite from Novell
provided you have set /etc/hosts and ~toto/.rhosts
rsh hostname -l toto date
will run the command date on the host
i think you could find a rlogin but am not sure.

toTo, yes rlogin, rsh (and friends) may do it if setup properly, means they don't require a password.
Most (hopefully any) UNIX programs read their password from tty. rsh, rlogin, etc. will do it too.
