Hey Guys,

I have a (i think) simple question, but i can't seem to get the answer though the help-files.
Hope that you can help me with this issue.

- I am opening a SSH Connection with the following function

Func _Connect($session,$usr,$pass)
    $exec = @ScriptDir & "\PLINK.EXE"
    If Not FileExists($exec) Then _Err("PLINK.EXE Not Found!",0)

       $pid = Run($exec & " -load " & $session & " -l " & $usr & " -pw " & $pass, @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE, 0x1 + 0x8)  ;Run SSH.EXE

    If Not $pid Then _Err("Failed to connect",0)
    $currentpid = $pid
    ;$rtn = _Read($pid)  ;Check for Login Success - Prompt
    ;sleep(5000) ;Wait for connection
    Return $pid

- This will connect to a CMS Server with a vt100 interface where a dynamic report is generated every 20 seconds.

- Then i will read the contents with the following Function

Func _Read($pid)
    If Not $pid Then Return -1
    Local $dataA
    Local $dataB
        $SSHREADTIMEOUT += 1
        $dataB = $dataA
        $dataA &= StdOutRead($pid)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
    Until ($dataB = $dataA And $dataA And $dataB) OR $SSHREADTIMEOUT == 50
    Return $dataA

This all goes correctly, but i can only read the contents once.
When i try to read the contents again i get nothing.

Maybe because the CMS isn't changing, but the values in the report is changing every 20 seconds.

I need to somehow read al of the contents every time i perform a Read action, but how?

Yes, i can use it in a While loop, but also then i get nothing or a small line of text and not the whole report.


Any Idea?


Thanks Guys! :)



I have fixed the problem by changing the terminal session to a vt220 session.
The only problem now is that i want to send the: "Data link escape" command and that is something i cannot fix,.

I have tried;


But nothing seems to work.


-- Edit-2 --

Guys, fixed that too!
Forgot to add the number '5' to actually execute the assignment.
So fixed it by using;


Thanks for reading with me :)

      Hello everyone,
      I've created a UDF for basic communication with SSH servers. I know there is already such a UDF, but I wasn't satisfied with it for my purpose, so I created a new one.
      This UDF also acts as a wrapper for the plink executable. Its essential functions are _SSHConnect, _SSHSend, _SSHRecv and _SSHCloseSocket.
      It does support multiple simultaneous connections and aims to be pretty robust. Feel free to share your opinions
      Two of the included examples use a slightly modified version of Vintage Terminal by @Chimp
      The download includes ssh.au3 (UDF), plink.exe (necessary), vintage terminal and code examples:
      Version 1.0.1
      - fixed rare _SSHConnect bug where "ssh-host-key prompt" was not answered

      Hi to all,
      I only am accustomed pas has posted on the forum (coz, I'm french). But I use it a lot.
      So first of all, thank you all to participate in the evolution of this wonderful product.
      Today is not one day like any other, I myself am decide has posted a UDF that I myself create and developed (there may be some bug) for some months.
      So here it is:
      This UDF allows to use the SSH protocol very easily in your code.
      It uses the syntax as the TCPxxx() function.
      Your code will be easier to convert :-).
      excused my English, I'm French.

      I join with UDF version of modified putty myself.  🙂 LoL
      but, it is not used with the UDF, it is included in the UDF.

      Good morning,
      I am trying to read a Unicode utf8 string from a perl subprocess via StdoutRead.
      I use an AUtoIt GUI and display result in an 'Edit' control (see my code below) using 'Courier New', a font that can handle Unicode characters.
      I was expecting a result looking like (CMD console):
      ++$ chcp 65001>NUL: & perl -Mutf8 -CS -e "use 5.018; binmode STDOUT,q(:utf8); say qq(\x{03A9})" & chcp 850>NUL: Ω Instead I get someting like this (see downward the screen copy):
      ++$ chcp 1250>NUL: & perl -Mutf8 -CS -e "use 5.018; binmode STDOUT,q(:utf8); say qq(\x{03A9})" & chcp 850>NUL: Ω Obviously while I was expecting to receive an utf8 char, it seems to have been converted to Windows ANSI codepage 1250 (Windows default for Western/Central Europe, right ?)
      What am I doing wrong? Is there someone who could guide me?
      Here is my code and my output in the GUI.
      Creating and configuring the Edit control:
      Local $Edit1 = GUICtrlCreateEdit( "", 20, 110, 780, 500, BitOr($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_EDIT,$ES_MULTILINE,$ES_READONLY) ) GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, "This field will contain text result from external Perl command") GUICtrlSetFont($Edit1, 10, $FW_THIN, $GUI_FONTNORMAL, "Courier New")  
      Executing Perl command (note: `-Mutf8` and `-CS` garantees that I work in utf8 and STDOUT accepts wide-characters):
      local $ExePath = 'perl.exe -Mutf8 -CS ' ;~ if perl in PATH, no need for full path C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe local $Params = '-e "use 5.018; use utf8; use charnames q(:full); binmode STDOUT,q(:utf8);' & _ 'say scalar localtime; say qq(\N{GREEK CAPITAL LETTER OMEGA})"' local $Cmd = $ExePath & ' ' & $Params Local $iPID = Run($Cmd, "", @SW_HIDE, BitOR($STDERR_CHILD, $STDOUT_CHILD))  
      Reading STDOUT and displaying it into the Edit control:
      While 1 $sOutput &= StdoutRead($iPID) If @error Then ; Exit the loop if the process closes or StdoutRead returns an error. ExitLoop EndIf WEnd If $sOutput <> '' Then GUICtrlSetData($Edit1, $sOutput) EndIf  
      And now, what I get on my GUI:

    • By Funtime60
      I have a Parent Script that starts multiple, concurrent child processes. I cannot figure out how to apply the technique for using StdoutRead in the examples in a way that listens to them all simultaneously.
      For reference, there can be any even number of, or single, child processes and there is an 1D array, $PIDS, that stores the PIDS of all the child processes and they should be outputting to another 1D array $sOutput.
      Thank you for your time. Please just point me in the right direction. I'm sorry if I missed another topic that covers this.

      to provide an easy to use starter to capture traffic on all NICs found, I can successfully get all the interfaces of TSHARK.EXE (the command line version that's automatically installed along with wireshark) with this script:
      #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> $TS_WD = "C:\Program Files\Wireshark" $TS_exe = $TS_WD & "\tshark.exe" if not FileExists($TS_exe) Then MsgBox(48,"Fatal Error","No Wireshark Commandline Tool ""TSHARK.EXE"" found:" & @CRLF & _ $TS_exe) Exit EndIf $DString = "" $PIDGetIFs = Run($TS_exe & " -D", $TS_WD, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_MERGED) While ProcessExists($PIDGetIFs) $DString &= StdoutRead($PIDGetIFs) WEnd ; MsgBox(0,"IFs",$DString) $aNICs = StringSplit($DString, @CRLF, 1) _ArrayDisplay($aNICs) $RegExIF = "^(?:\d+\. )(\\.*?})(?: \()(.*?)(\))$" ; $1 = TSHARK Interface Name, $2 = Windows Interface Name ; ... get the names to run TSHARK with the appropriate interface string  
      When I run TSHARK.EXE using this line directly, I see a continuously growing number telling the number of packets captured so far.
      "C:\Program Files\Wireshark\tshark.exe" -i \Device\NPF_{AEB931E9-E5FA-4DA5-8328-D87BDF53805C} -b duration:300 -b files:600 -w "y:\TShark-Ringbuffer\LAN-Verbindung\TSHARK-Com-0317_17---LAN-Verbindung___.pcap" Using this script, I *DO* see the first output line "Capturing on 'LAN-Verbindung'", but I cannot get hold of the continuously growing number of packets captured so far.
      #include <AutoItConstants.au3> $WD="C:\Program Files\Wireshark" $CMD='"C:\Program Files\Wireshark\tshark.exe" -i \Device\NPF_{AEB931E9-E5FA-4DA5-8328-D87BDF53805C} -b duration:300 -b files:600 -w "y:\TShark-Ringbuffer\LAN-Verbindung\TSHARK-Com-0317_17---LAN-Verbindung___.pcap"' ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $CMD = ' & $CMD & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console $PID=Run($CMD,$WD,@SW_SHOW,$stderr_merged) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $PID = ' & $PID & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console $OutputAll="" While ProcessExists($PID) $output=StdoutRead($PID) $OutputAll&=$output ToolTip($OutputAll) if $output <> "" then ConsoleWrite("""" & $output & """" & @CRLF) Sleep(1000) WEnd ConsoleWrite("Process vanished" & @CRLF)  
      This is the output of SciTE, when I let TSHARK.EXE run for a short while, the "close" it's "box" ...
      --> Press Ctrl+Alt+Break to Restart or Ctrl+Break to Stop @@ Debug(10) : $CMD = "C:\Program Files\Wireshark\tshark.exe" -i \Device\NPF_{AEB931E9-E5FA-4DA5-8328-D87BDF53805C} -b duration:300 -b files:600 -w "y:\TShark-Ringbuffer\LAN-Verbindung\TSHARK-Com-0317_17---LAN-Verbindung___.pcap" >Error code: 0 @@ Debug(13) : $PID = 10948 >Error code: 0 "Capturing on 'LAN-Verbindung' " Process vanished  
      Howto catch the "growing-packet-number" TSHARK.EXE is writing continuously to the same "window position"???
