how to create a shortcut to a telnet session?

My Network Places doesn't allow telnet://host.example.com, so how can I
create a shortcut? The only thing I've come up with so far is to add it to
Internet Explorer's Favorites -- yuck.

Telnet in WinXP is a command-line utility only, so I guess you could write a
batch file and create a shortcut to that, but what is it you're trying to do
with telnet?

Look for a program called Teraterm - it's ancient (Win3.1 vintage I think)
but it's far better than the built-in client, and inclues scripting.

Make an Icon for Telnet.exe, then in the properties, under target, say

C:\WINDOWS\system32\telnet.exe host.example.com

or make a shortcut to cmd.exe go to properties, and in 'target',, type
C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /k telnet host.example.com

I bet you're trying to connect to web servers, then you need 80 at the
end.


C:\WINDOWS\system32\telnet.exe host.example.com 80

or make a shortcut to cmd.exe go to properties, and in 'target',, type
C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /k telnet host.example.com 80
