environment variables

hello... i've got a problem with environment variables...
basically it is this, when i telnet or ssh into my linux
machine, the same bash environment variables are not set
as when i physically log into the linux machine..
do i need to manually run ~/.profile or ~/.bash_profile when logging
in via telnet to get bash to initialize the environment variables?
weird.. thanks...
