If these are LTSP terminals doing nothing but the telnet session you
can configure in lts.conf
SCREEN_01 = telnet
TELNET_HOST = ip.addess
Then you don't have to log into the server at all - it starts a local
telnet to the specified host.

If you are doing something more complicated and the time clock system
allows ssh, you can set up ssh keys for each user for passwordless
ssh connections to the time clock after logging into the server.
