Some peculiarities about Java PrintWriter: PrintWriter never throws any exceptions. From JavaDoc : Methods in this class never throw I/O exceptions, although some of its constructors may. The client may inquire as to whether any errors have occurred by invoking checkError(). When error occurs, you'll never know anything more than that it occured, because checkError returns boolean. When a character is out of the range of the character encoding of the PrintWriter, it prints a question mark (?). But this is not an error. Test code: import java.io.*; public class TestPrintWri...

Also, the constructor throws a FileNotFoundException when you try to write to a...

A first attempt would be to create an input file like this: userid password shell_command1 shell_... and feed the lines to the telnet client: cat telnet_input.txt | telnet remote_host #... However, you'll learn soon enough that it doesn't work. You get output like this: Trying 192.168.159.128... Connected to bash... What's happening? The telnet client depleted all input before the remote host had a chance to respond. Since there's no more input, the telnet client initiated to close the connection. Adding a delay between the commands makes it work: (echo userid sleep 10 echo password ... How much time to sleep between commands is just guesswork.
