Net::Telnet is your friend for working with telnet. It's easily scriptable and most systems have telnet support. This comes in handy when I have to use machines which I'm not sysadmin on, but I have a need to use, and the machine is on a private lan. (If a clever hacker can gain access to the lan, they can have access to my machine.)
