Question Multiple telnet sessions from the command line


I would like to know if it is possible to run multiple telnet sessions from one command line. For instance connect to several BBSes over telnet at the same time. If this is possible how would I do it?

Sincerely,
Armethous

Can you ctrl+alt between the terminals from a telnet session?
I guess I should explain what I am trying to accomplish. I am responsible for monitoring several remote servers for work. I monitor these servers by telneting into them. What I am trying to accomplish is having one box connected to these servers most of the time. I would like to be able to telnet into this box to gain access to the other servers remotely. That way I don't have to spend all afternoon brining up seperate sessions for each of the servers. I know its possible in seperate terminal windows but is it possible to switch terminals over telnet?

I don't think that will work.

I need something that will work from the command line. This is what I'm trying to accomplish.http://www.knology.net/~blumpkin/Image3.gif

In other words the linux box in my office should Telnet into the servers in FL, SC, AL, & GA and that connection will remain active (unless there is a network or server failure). I will then telnet into the Linux box at work from home and through that box be connected to the FL, SC, AL, and GA servers.
Another possibility is that the connections from the linux box in my office would not remain established 27\7. I have also considered writing a script that I could execute to establish the telnet sessions from the box in my office to the remote servers.
Ultimately I would like to have this working so that several administrators could be logged in to the remote servers through the linux box in my office.
