Hi Jason,
As I understand it, Larry's question has nothing to do with TELNET so to 
  He is only using it, instead of sh TELNET,  because of a speakup issue 
that no one has addressed.
This equally has nothing to do with shellworld.  I use ssh TELNET many 
times  a day to come here, am doing so right now to write this email. 
However I am doing this in pure dos, have no delays, and am not, like  Larry 
using speakup.

  In an effort to try and get him a more direct answer, is his lag issue 
due to speakup or something else?
