automatic login from windows by a telnet session

Help me please,

I wanna know if it's possible to define in windows the option when somebody starts a telnetsession to a unix machine it automatically logs in with the username and password of this user. Or if there is a possibility to set the username and password to an Icon on the users desktop. I know this is possible to a sql session but don't know if this is possible to a telnetsession.

Just have a look @ the help topic for telnet

telnet [-a][-e escape char][-f log file][-l user][-t term][host [port]]
-a Attempt automatic logon. Same as -l option except uses
the currently logged on user's name.
-e Escape character to enter telnet client prompt.
-f File name for client side logging
-l Specifies the user name to log in with on the remote system.
Requires that the remote system support the TELNET ENVIRON option.
-t Specifies terminal type.
Supported term types are vt100, vt52, ansi and vtnt only.
host Specifies the hostname or IP address of the remote computer
to connect to.
port Specifies a port number or service name.

In my understanding you just have to choose the -a flag and it should work if therse a fitting user set up on your unix box
