Trouble with TCPConnect for telnet

Recommended Posts


Hi guys,

I'm having some trouble with using the built in network functions. Specifically, I am trying to connect to a device via telnet, send login information then issue a command.

Here's the code sample I am using:

Global $socket = -1
$delay = 500
$ip = ""
$timer = TimerInit()
$socket = TCPConnect($ip, 23)
If @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Connection Failed" & @CRLF & "Error: " & @error)

_MySend("command to do what I want")


Func _MySend($msg)
    TCPSend($socket, $msg & @LF)
    If @error Then
        ConsoleWrite("Error Sending Text" & @CRLF)
        ConsoleWrite($msg & " : sent at " & Round(TimerDiff($timer) / 1000, 2) & " sec" & @CRLF)
EndFunc   ;==>_MySend

Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong?

I've played around with assorted delays between sends, with using @LF vs @CR vs @CRLF vs chr(10) vs chr(13) and am not having any luck.


[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]

Hey SpookMeister,

usually when I run into these kind of problems I use a packet scanner like WireShark or WPE Pro 0.9x.

Also, your problem might just be caused by the fact that you're not willing to receive the data back. Try and TCPRecv the data and, for debugging purposes, write the data that you receive to the console or something.
