question
How do I autoconnect via Telnet, using an icon on the desktop?
  
answer

In order to create a  desktop shortcut please follow the steps below:

  1. Use "My Computer" or "Explorer" to view the PowerTerm Directory.
  2. Look for the PowerTerm executable, `ptw32.exe`.
  3. Right-mouse-click on this item and choose `Create Shortcut`. A new icon will appear. (You may rename this if you like.)
  4. Drag this new icon onto the Desktop.
  5. Right-mouse-click on it again and choose `Properties`.
  6. Select the `Shortcut` tab and then modify the `Target` line:
..... ptw32.exe
Simply add `telnet.psl` and the host you want to telnet to.

example:

..... ptw32.exe telnet.psl myhost
where myhost is the name or IP address of the host system you are trying to connect to
Important Note:
If you see quote marks around the text on the target line, place the new words OUTSIDE of the quotes, so you will have a target such as
"C:\Program Files\PTW32\ptw32.exe" telnet.psl myhost
