Scheduling Telnet Session

6 posts in this topic

I created a very simple Autoit script that takes care of a telnet session, I compiled it to an exe file and it works great when running it manually. I created a task on a Windows 2003 SP1 server that runs the scripts on a certain time. It starts the task but nothing happens, I can see the telnet session in processes and have to end it manually. I assume it is because telnet is an interactive session any suggestion on what I can do. I attached an example of one of the scripts.telnettest.au3

Hi,

here's a script I use to save me time when using telnet, you may be able to modifiy for your own.

; Run Telnet
Run("telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx")

; Rename window
$WinTitle="Telnet (NE Gateway) <<- F9-Check Java / F10-List Files / CTRL+d to exit ->>"
WinWait("Telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx","")
WinSetTitle("Telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx","",$WinTitle)
WinActivate($WinTitle,"")

; Login and change to export directory
xSend($WinTitle,"user{ENTER}")
xSend($WinTitle,"password{ENTER}")
ListFiles()

; Main loop
while WinExists($WinTitle,"")
  if WinActive($WinTitle,"") then
    HotKeySet("{F9}", "CheckJavaProcesses")
    HotKeySet("{F10}", "ListFiles")
  else
    HotKeySet("{F9}")
    HotKeySet("{F10}")
  endif

  Sleep(20)
wend
Exit

; Extended send function
func xSend($aWinTitle,$aString)
  Sleep(500)
  WinActivate($aWinTitle,"")
  Send($aString)
endfunc

; Check for java processes, kill required and restart
func CheckJavaProcesses()
  xSend($WinTitle,"ps -A | grep java{ENTER}")
  $Result=InputBox("Java Processes","Enter Number to Kill, Leave empty if not","")
  if $Result <> "" then
    xSend($WinTitle,"kill " & $Result & "{ENTER}")
    xSend($WinTitle,"cd /u/export-processor/bin{ENTER}")
    xSend($WinTitle,"gateway-bg{ENTER}")
    xSend($WinTitle,"{ENTER}")
    xSend($WinTitle,"ps -A | grep java{ENTER}")
  endif
endfunc

func ListFiles()
  xSend($WinTitle,"cd /u/sman/xxxx/export{ENTER}")
  xSend($WinTitle,"ls{ENTER}")
endfunc

Did you schedule a task to run the script???

No.

When you created your scheduled task, are you allowing it to interact with the desktop.

If not, then its not run interactively.

If it's Windows Vista or above, you have to install Telnet before you can use it. It's not installed by default any longer. Also, you're posting in a 9 year old post.
