TeraTerm with varibles from CMD

7 posts in this topic

Dear forum members,

 

I am trying to create a script that will allow me to launch ttermpro.exe (telnet client) via Autoit.

I was able to get this working by using the following:

Global $ip
$ip = '192.168.1.11'
$username = 'telnet'
$pwd = 'Aa123456'

#RequireAdmin
Run(@ScriptDir &'\ttermpro.exe')
AutoItSetOption('MouseCoordMode',0)

WinWait('Tera Term: New connection')
WinActivate('Tera Term: New connection')
MouseClick('primary', 198, 101, 1, 0)
WinWait('Tera Term: New connection')
MouseClick('primary', 295, 55, 1, 0)
ControlSend('Tera Term: New connection','', '', ""& $ip & "")
MouseClick('primary', 146, 260, 1, 0)
WinWait($ip & " - Tera Term VT")
ControlSend($ip & " - Tera Term VT", "", "", $username & "{ENTER}")
ControlSend($ip & " - Tera Term VT", "", "", $pwd & "{ENTER}")

 

However, it means that I will have to hardcode $ip, $username and $pwd, and that is not something I would like to do.

I would like to run it from cmd similar to the following:

test 192.168.1.1 telnet Aa123456

and to have these paremeters map to $ip,$username,$hostname 

 

How can I accomplish this?

 

Thanks,

Kelso

@kelso TeraTerm comes with a ton of built in command line options, with a pretty good reference sheet on their website (just Google TeraTerm command line). Have you tried this yet, to save yourself the headache of the MouseClick method?

Thanks for your reply.

Yes I am aware that there are better ways than mouse clicks and I plan on translating it to something better.

I just want to have POC with mouse clicks as it's the easiest thing I saw in the guide books.

The only missing piece of the puzzle is how do I feel the variables using cmd line.

Ok so I took your comments, change the method to Putty and it looks like the following:

$ip = '192.168.1.11'
$username = 'telnet'
$pwd = 'Aa123456'
$port = ':23'

Run(@ScriptDir &'\putty.exe telnet://' & $ip & $port)
WinWait($ip & " - PuTTY")
ControlSend($ip & " - PuTTY", "", "", $username & "{ENTER}")
ControlSend($ip & " - PuTTY", "", "", $pwd & "{ENTER}")

works great, now I just need to figure out how I can fetch the parameters of ip,username  and pwd from command line, any suggestions?

You could create a small gui around the script, allowing the user to enter username and password. Something like this, perhaps:

#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Local $sUserName, $sPassword

$hGUI = GUICreate("TeraTerm", 300, 500)
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
    GUISetFont(11, 400, Default, "Arial")

    $lblUserName = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Username", 115, 10, 65, 30)
    $lblPassword = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Password", 115, 90, 150, 30)
    $lblVerify = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Verify Password", 95, 170, 150, 30)
    $lblIP = GUICtrlCreateLabel("IP Address", 105, 250, 150, 30)
    $lblPort = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Port", 115, 330, 150, 30)

    $inpUserName = GUICtrlCreateInput(@UserName, 10, 40, 280, 30, $ES_CENTER)
    $inpPassword = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 120, 280, 30, $ES_PASSWORD)
    $inpVerify = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 200, 280, 30, $ES_PASSWORD)
    $inpIP = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 280, 280, 30)
    $inpPort = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 360, 280, 30)

    $btnGo = GUICtrlCreateButton("Connect", 10, 450, 125, 35)
    $btnClose = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 165, 450, 125, 35)

    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $btnClose
                ExitLoop
            Case $btnGo
                If GUICtrlRead($inpPassword) == GUICtrlRead($inpVerify) Then
                    $sUserName = GUICtrlRead($inpUserName)
                    $sPassword = GUICtrlRead($inpPassword)
                    $sIP = GUICtrlRead($inpIP)
                    $sPort = GUICtrlRead($inpPort)
                    _connectPutty($sUserName, $sPassword, $sIP, $sPort)
                Else
                    MsgBox(0, "TeraTerm", "Passwords do not match!")
                EndIf
        EndSwitch
    WEnd

Func _connectPutty($Username, $Password, $IP, $PortNum)
    Run(@ScriptDir &'\putty.exe telnet://' & $IP & $PortNum)
    WinWait($IP & " - PuTTY")
    ControlSend($IP & " - PuTTY", "", "", $Username & "{ENTER}")
    ControlSend($IP & " - PuTTY", "", "", $Password & "{ENTER}")
EndFunc

Thank you. I got it solved by using the following.

 

;Global $ip
$ip = $CmdLine[1]
$username = $CmdLine[2]
$pwd = $CmdLine[3]
$port = ':23'

Run(@ScriptDir &'\putty.exe telnet://' & $ip & $port)
WinWait($ip & " - PuTTY")
ControlSend($ip & " - PuTTY", "", "", $username & "{ENTER}")
ControlSend($ip & " - PuTTY", "", "", $pwd & "{ENTER}")

Usually for scripts that need user input on each run I start with a simple InputBox() for testing, once that is working the way I want, I go retrofit the script with a GUI instead.

My favorite program is Putty but specifically I really like Super Putty, once taken the time to build my folder tree for my  network infrastructure I can connect/find anything pretty fast and easy.

So it holds all my switch names/locations/ip addresses, and I can just script my PW to an auto fill hotkey for faster entry.
