Can VB.NET Created Program Send keystrokes to TelNet?

Experts,

I know that a VB.NET program can send key strokes to a computer.  Can a VB.NET program also send key strokes to a  Telnet session as well?  

The answer to this question is now needed urgently.  Thanks for your time!  


FYI, at Telnet session is used to access a mainframe/database; you may recognize it by it's black screen with green letters.

Good point Mike.  SendKeys won't work, but keybd_event should, but it's tricky to implement sometimes.  You gotta love when you get to revisit questions ;)
