Should telnet session print something that you're waiting for in a while loop? What I mean is that after the first while() you've logged into the remote host. Then telnet is waiting for your command, isn't it?

Please check the following code carefully, it works fine:

<?php

ini_set("expect.loguser", "Off");
$stream = fopen("expect://telnet localhost", 'r');

$cases = array (
		array (0 => "vm-ubuntu login: ", 1 => USERNAME),
		array (0 => "Password: ", 1 => PASSWORD),
		array (0 => ":~$ ", 1 => PROMPT)
	       );

while (true) {
	switch (expect_expectl ($stream, $cases)) {
		case USERNAME:
			fwrite ($stream, "michael\n");
			break;
		case PASSWORD:
			fwrite ($stream, "pass\n");
			break;
		case PROMPT:
			break 2;
		default:
			die ("Error was occurred while connecting to the remote
					host!\n");
	}
}

fwrite($stream, "exit\n");

while ($line = fgets($stream)) {
	print $line;
}
fclose ($stream);

?>
