    I think the best idea would be to store the output to a variable and run an if statement on the variable to see if connected or not, however it has been many years since I have used DOS and don't know if the telnet command can output to a variable, but if it can be, this page ( http://www.batchfiles.co.nr/ ) will give you similar examples, so just adapt them to your own code. Let us know if it worked, post the working code if you manage it. Thanks,
