Manual telnet would produce:

User Access Verification


When I use the code below, I only get:

User Access Verification

(Can't get to the password prompt.)
use warnings;
use strict;
use Net::Telnet;
my $Response;
my $telnet = Net::Telnet->new();
  or die "Could not open connection\n";
while ($Response = $telnet->getline){
        print $Response;

The getline function will return the next line, and if one isn't available, it'll wait for one (or until it times out).  A line ends with "\n" (but this can be changed).  Since the password line doesn't have a "\n" on the end, it isn't yet a full line, so the getline function doesn't return it.

It sounds like you might want to use the waitfor function instead of getline:

You might want to read through the Net::Telnet documentation, as there are a lot of features of this module
my $telnet = Net::Telnet->new();
  or die "Could not open connection\n";
