Telnet Socket output

I have a Socket() on port 23. I get the DataOutputStream and am ready to write. I want to send messages just like typing them over a telnet terminal or console.

I have tried the writeChars() method and the writeBytes() method, but no good. What should I do? Also, should the string to be sent be "message" or "message\n" or "message\r"?

Thanks

It's not that simple, read the telnet tfc:

you usually have to perform option negotiation before you can send any data

see the following article
