Telnet from where to where? Which operating systems? –  Nils Sep 12 '12 at 19:48

Except for communication with really low-end devices, please banish telnet servers from your network. Use ssh. And if you're just using telnet as a tool to transfer data, not for logins, see netcat—unlike telnet, it defaults to binary clean. –  derobert Sep 12 '12 at 19:53

Is it a strict requirement, that you have to use telnet to accomplish the task? If not, please consider using an ssh connection to the server.

ssh username@domain.com

At command line after giving a password:
cp /home/of/user/A/fileX /home/of/user/B

These commands would do the trick in that case.
