Here's an example using  a command1 button... Add this to a form:

Sub Sleep(Interval As Long)
    Dim lTimer As Long
    lTimer = Timer + Interval
    Do While Timer < lTimer
End Sub
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim lReturn As Variant
    lReturn = Shell("Telnet hostname", vbNormalFocus) 'REPLACE hostname WITH NAME OF HOST
    AppActivate lReturn
    Sleep 1
    SendKeys "mcrider{ENTER}" 'SEND USERID
    Sleep 1
    SendKeys "noneofyourbusiness{ENTER}" 'SEND PASSWORD
End Sub

Hope this helps!
