When I try to send a password through a socket to a particular server, it fails to respond. I am connecting through the telnet port(23). When I do this manually, it works, but when I do it through sockets, I fail to get a response. The server responds to all other request sent through the socket, except the password. Is there any special setting I need to make for this ?

I think you really need to read the TELNET RFC and
find out exactly what the protocol requirements
are. It's clear that you're not following the specification,
which is why you're not getting a response. You may
have a line termination problem - TELNET expects

as a line terminator always, even when you are connecting
from Unix or some other system that does not use that
line termination.
