Telnet access can be scripted, and the script launched by an icon, 
clicked by a moron. You can even get clever, and have the local script 
check the local username, and pass that to the telnet session, in case 
the user can't remember who they are. Procomm and WRQ both have excellent 
scripting capability.

I wonder if all the security on the front end of this could be bypassed 
by the user entering a cleardown followed by a dial command if Hayes 
commands are left enabled on the modem ...
