It sounds as if there is an entry in "Limit Network Access" for that machine (by I.P. address). Check "A> ADDITIONAL system functions" / "A> ALTER system parameters" / "L> LOGIN names & parameters" / "N> Limit NETWORK access" . . .
The entry for TELNET can serve up a login based upon the I.P. address, or a range of addresses. If that is the case, your Telnet client would have no opportunity to override the default login. Removing that entry would allow you to enter the login of your choice, or script it in your client.

I have a strange problem I have a staff machine that when you telnet
into our Innovative server - automatically defaults to a public login
and password. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the telnet
software, I've tried installing a different telnet software - and
nothing works - it keeps defaulting. I've looked in the registry - but
couldn't find where it is getting the login and password. Does anyone
have any ideas - short of just reinstalling the entire machine?
Any ideas and suggestions are appreciated!
