Is this possible?


I don't need to know how to do this, just if it is possible.  

This is what I would like to do:
Using VB.NET or C#.NET I would like to create a program that opens a Telnet session program that is already on the machine.  From there it will type keys that I will pre-set.  Then I want this program to execute a dts package, this can be done from a command prompt.  

Thanks a lot for your time.  The answer to this question is needed urgently.

Yes, it should be possible...

Use Process.Start() to open the Telnet program and the command prompt application.

Then use SendKeys.Send() to send the keys.
You may need Win APIs such as keybd_event() to make it work properly though.
Or even PostMessage() to send input directly to a control in the target app.
