Network Get telnetd to start a process other than login

I want to be able to get telnetd to start a program of my choice or one that I have written . . . or . . . write a daemon of my own to listen on a port other than 23 and when a connection arrives it should create a controlling tty/pty and then launch my program on the client side of the pty.

A client wants to be able to "telnet" to my box and have perl scripts and shell scripts do the authentication, not the unix login process.

OS is HP-UX 10.20 or 11

Might consider looking at the man page for getty and gettydefs for starters. Also, the man pages for login and login.defs may be helpful as well.

getty and getty.defs deal only with serially connected terminals. login and login.defs is what I would like to replace, so I didn't see anything intersting in there either.
