Do you know what it is you'd have to be reinventing? TELNET itself is
just a TCP socket with some special handling of byte 0xFF, which quite
possibly won't even come up in what you're doing here. For the rest,
it's just a matter of sending and receiving text; is there something
complicated in the authentication system that you'd be needing to
recreate? Otherwise I think you'll find that it's simpler than you
