   Connections established with the telnet program are often nothing 
more than "regular" bytes being read from and written to a socket. 
There are features of the telnet protocol, but using a program with 
"telnet" in its name does not obligate you to use them.  For example, I 
frequently debug HTTP, IMAP4, SMTP, and POP3 servers using telnet.  None 
of these protocols is related to the telnet protocol, but the "telnet" 
program works just fine for interacting with them.

   I hope this helps you decide,
