Re: Telnet Script

sorry for the double post (the one above)
no points for that one please

one nice thing about expect is that it has a build it script writter called autoexpect

if you are having errors you can use autoexpect to automatically generate a script for you.

just type:
autoexpect -f filename telnet servername

and proceed to log in
once you are done hit Ctrl D (or Ctrl C - i can't remember which) and expect will write a script of your session to "filename" you specified in your command line. edit that file and remove some of the unnecessary lines and you'll be all set
