Why don't I see the "login:" prompt with some sites using the Telnet Control ?

First, make sure that you are implementing the options negotiation. The server will not send readable text (DataIn event) until options negotiation has finished.

Some sites send NULL (0 characters) and you have to trim the Text which comes in the DataIn Event before displaying it, as text boxes will ignore everything after a NULL character.
