A scenario...

     1)  The proxy is running on port 8023 of System1.
     2)  The user logs on to system 1.
     3)  User wants to get to System2, which only accepts SSL
     4)  User types 'TELNET LOOPBACK PORT(8023)'
     5)  A normal telnet connection is made to port 8023 on
           system1, since this doesn't go out to the network,
           you don't have to worry about encryption.
     6)  The proxy receives the connection, so it creates an
           SSL connection to port 992 on System2.
     7)  The proxy copies all data sent by the user's telnet
           client to the SSL connection on System2.
     8)  The proxy copies all data sent by System2 to the
           user's telnet client.

In this way, the telnet client doesn't have to understand the SSL
protocol, and the proxy doesn't have to understand the TELNET
protocol.  The proxy does the SSL portion, and the TELNET client does
the TELNET portion.

I hope this is what you meant by 'scenario', your question wasn't very
clear to me.
