Telnet does not support passing either username or passwords. You must use ssh instead.

not true actually, you can pipe commands into it, or as an alternative approach you can use expect to automate a session. similarily you can't supply commandline passwords in ssh either. ssh is certainly preferable to telnet any day though.
