Get Output from plink.exe

6 posts in this topic

HI,

headline says it all.

Example:

#include <Constants.au3>
Dim $text
 $stream = Run(@comspec & ' /c plink.exe -v hugo','',@SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) ; doens't work
; $stream = Run(@comspec & ' /c plink.exe -v ','',@SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) ; works
; $stream = Run(@comspec & ' /c plink.exe ','',@SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD) , works

While 1
    $textline = StdoutRead($stream)
    $text = $text & @CRLF & $textline
    If @error Then ExitLoop   
Wend

MsgBox(0, "STDOUT read:", $text)

So long,

Mega

I've got plink working as a call from AutoIT - and can read it's output.

First problem you have might be with the plink setup.

You also need pageant and puttygen

It's better to use ssh

plink -v hugo

isn't actually doing a lot - just getting verbose messages

'hugo' (in your case) is actually getting the PuTTY session, not the host. You need to setup ssh on your host, generate a SSH key and a passphrase for pageant. Pageant takes your passphrase (like your bank pin code) and then sends the more complex SSH key

Check that you can then give a command like

plink -ssh hugo ls

If it asks you for your username, then you need to setup your username in a PuTTY session

Dim $sPlinkFullPath = '.....\plink.exe'

RunWait($sPlinkFullPath & ' -ssh "hugo" "ls"',@SW_MAXIMIZE)

should then get you the output of the 'ls' command for the specified account in PuTTY session 'hugo'.

See the Plink/Putty documentation http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/0.58/htmldoc/

Use Run with the options discussed previously to capture the output from the plink session.

Now my problem:

I'm using an AutoIt script to call some commands on a remote computer.

The AutoIt script is itself called from another program.

The plink works ok, but I need to capture the output and get it back to the program that called the AutoIt script, i.e. a pipe. Capturing the data is ok, but I'm having problems getting it back to the calling program. Any ideas?

Hi,

you can write it to a file or send it via TCPSend.

Stumbled on the ConsoleWrite/ConsoleWriteError functions.

Worked ok sitting in a loop reading the output with StdoutRead and writing it using ConsoleWrite.
