Using AutoIT to send telnet commands in background

3 posts in this topic

heya folks

it's my first day programming with autoit.

what i want to do, i have a neuros media center box with linux on it.

by telnet i can send commands, no problem.

what i want to do, do a programm on my computer (windows), that does this commands in the background.

for example to play music, i write down "xmms2 play" and so on...

this is what i've done til now...

is that the "best" way, or a good way, or is it just crap...

i mean it works, but i think i looks a bit ugly, if everytime i press a button,

quickly a black window starts up...

some suggestions?

thank you all.

Instead of using the telnet tool, you can use AutoIt's native TCP functions.

Example:

TCPStartUp()

$socket = TCPConnect(127.0.0.1, 80)

TCPSend($socket, "hello" & @CRLF)

MsgBox(0, "TCP Example - server response", TCPReceive($socket, 1024))

TCPSend($socket, "bye" & @CRLF)

TCPCloseSocket($socket)

TCPShutDown()

Hi TomZ!

i don't think AutoIt native TCP function could solve the telnet problme IF you are telnet into server which running Linux like

Redhat or CentOS . It will prompt unusual char refer to http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=44542

Please advice!
