Thank you Jean-Paul for replying,

I still have some things that I don't understand:

If I put your piece of code in my factory's protocol, I can connect to the server but as soon as I enter the username, I got the an error message telling that Server doesn't support "will" ('Server' object has no attribute 'will').

I understand that this has something to do with TelnetTranport but how to implement it?
I read the telnet_echo.tac but in my case I have to manage the portal also and that is a litle bit too complex for me.

You say also that AuthenticatingTelnetProtocol  expects to be connected to an ITelnetTransport, but the documentation says "When the information is collected, it is passed to a portal and an avatar 
implementing ITelnetProtocol is requested". 
I'm lost.

May I abuse to ask you to tell how to do?

Many thanks
