telnet script help

whould it be possible to right a shell script in linux that could telnet to an ip then enter a command.

I have tryed but once the telnet session is open, no more input commands with work from the shell script to the telnet server.

Why don't you use ssh instead?

ssh my_user@my_host my_command
