Does any one use any scripts for Telnet? For example we have a router at a client's site that will suddenly drop, and we have to Telnt on to it and reload/reboot it to bring the whole thing back up again. Although using the Telnet command is not too cumbersome, it would be nice to be able to automate/script this to make things a bit easier and quicker.
So far I have not had too much luck with creating the write script, and just want to make sure that it is possible before realising down the road that it isn't.
So you can't just script Telnet commands because you can't pass the commands to telnet from cmd.
There is a program i use to use called TelnetUtil
This might be able to help you with your troubles. Let me know if you need any help.
we use Auto it V3 www.autoitscript.com/.../index.shtml
AutoIT will work wonder's also and I second his recommendation. Only issue is learning to Code with AutoIT but it has some great Tutorials with it.
Thanks for the feedback, I will certainly be looking at the links you have posted. Hopefully these will help with what I need to do.
Putty will also allow you to provide a script that will perform the commands. However, I'd recommend fixing the router.
Agreed. Fix the router!
I use jerrymannel.com/.../telnet-scripting-tool-aka-tst10exe
