script for telnet

Hi

Is there any way to write a script , which telnets another system without prompting for userid and password (if userid and password info provided in the script) ??

Thanks in advance

Yes,

And it's easy with perl's net::telnet module.

The best way is use EXPECT , but if you want simplest way try this:

----------
#!/bin/sh
(sleep 5
echo username
sleep 5
echo password
sleep 5
echo ls
sleep 5
echo exit) |telnet hostname
