Ah, forgot to say, I'm not using telnet to connect like one would do using ssh. Therefore there are no login and/or password required.
An example of one of my telnet session would be:
$ telnet www.linuxquestions.org
Connected to www.linuxquestions.org
Escape character is '^]'.

[where <CR><LF> should be replaced by pressing the 'ENTER' key]
[Below is a snippet of what the server responded:]
