I want to convert the below code to HTA.
dim oshell

strip = Inputbox("Enter the IP Address", "IP Address")

strname=inputbox("Enter the Username", "Username")

strpswd=inputbox("Enter the Password", "Password")

strdesc=inputbox("Enter Description", "Description")

set oshell = Wscript.createobject ("Wscript.shell")

oshell.run "telnet " & strip

oshell.appactivate "Telnet"

Wscript.sleep 100

oshell.appactivate "Telnet " & strip

oshell.sendkeys strname

Wscript.sleep 100

oshell.sendkeys "{ENTER}"

Wscript.sleep 100

oshell.sendkeys strpswd

Wscript.sleep 100

Here's the basics...ideally for something professional looking, you'd want to modify the gui - adding tables, colors, etc.  There are plenty of sites with html examples, if you don't know html (I'm not strong in that area).

I've included a validate sub to allow you to verify the data input.
For example, you could add a regular expression to ensure that the ip address consists of 3 periods.  You could also test that none of the numbers exceed a valid range, or go above 255...

Same could be done for the other fields.
Have fun!

Remove wscript from your code line:
set oshell = Wscript.createobject ("Wscript.shell")

to read:
set oshell =createobject ("Wscript.shell")

Correct - you cannot use wscript.sleep as it's a method of wsh, not hta.
You could use a timer instead...
However, with 100 ms delays, is it needed?
Try it without:

<head>

   <title>telnet script</title>

<script Language="VBScript">

 

Sub Main()

dim oshell

strip = ip.Value

strname=username.Value

strpswd=password.Value

strdesc=desc.value

set oshell = Wscript.createobject ("Wscript.shell")

oshell.run "telnet " & strip

oshell.appactivate "Telnet"

oshell.appactivate "Telnet " & strip

oshell.sendkeys strname

oshell.sendkeys "{ENTER}"

oshell.sendkeys strpswd

oshell.sendkeys "{ENTER}"

oshell.sendkeys "interface Serial 0/0/0"

oshell.sendkeys "{ENTER}"

oshell.sendkeys "description " & strdesc

oshell.sendkeys "{ENTER}"

set oshell = Nothing

End Sub

 

Sub ValidateDetails()

The code is working without any errors. But when i try to run the script it opens Telnet 10.10.10.20 and enters the username and password and then stops there. If you manually press enter it does not working it says "Incorrect Password". I think thats why the Sleep command is required. Please check.

Try this...it'll generate a temporary script file to perform the sleep routine...
<html> 

<head>

   <title>telnet script</title>

</head>

 

<script Language="VBScript">

 

Sub Main()

dim oshell

strip = ip.Value

strname=username.Value

strpswd=password.Value

strdesc=desc.value

set oshell = Wscript.createobject ("Wscript.shell")

oshell.run "telnet " & strip

oshell.appactivate "Telnet"

Wait 100

oshell.appactivate "Telnet " & strip

oshell.sendkeys strname

Wait 100

oshell.sendkeys "{ENTER}"

Wait 100

oshell.sendkeys strpswd

Wait 100

oshell.sendkeys "{ENTER}"

Wait 100

oshell.sendkeys "interface Serial 0/0/0"

Wait 100

oshell.sendkeys "{ENTER}"

Wait 100

oshell.sendkeys "description " & strdesc

oshell.sendkeys "{ENTER}"

set oshell = Nothing

End Sub

 

Sub ValidateDetails()

  'Rules to validate ip.Value, username.Value, password.Value & desc.Value

 

  'Now run 'your' code...

  Main()

End Sub
 

Sub Wait(ms) 

  Dim objFSO : Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

  If Not objFSO.FileExists("wait.vbs") Then 

    Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile("wait.vbs")

    objFile.WriteLine "wscript.sleep wscript.arguments(0)"

    objFile.Close

  End If
 

  CreateObject("WScript.Shell").Run "wait.vbs " & ms,1 , True

End Sub
 

</script>

 

<body>

Enter the IP Address:<input type="text" name="ip"/><br />

Enter the Username:<input type="text" name="username" /><br />

Enter the Password:<input type="text" name="password" /><br />

Enter Description:<input type="text" name="desc" /><br />

That worked absoultely fine. Only one problem.... it is creating a Wait.vbs file... that should get deleted once i close the HTA is it possible.

1) Move the objFSO declaration from line 44 to the line immediately following the opening script tag <script>.

2) Just after line 33 (line 34), enter the following line (line 34, the End Sub line will become line 35).

    If objFSO.FileExists("wait.vbs") Then objFSO.DeleteFile "wait.vbs"
