if you need to automate an interactive command you can use expect [1][2]
> Thank you for your reply. I am trying like the followings:
>set name
>set user id
>set password pwd
>set cmd1 "cd /tmp"
>set cmd2 "cp log.cap /export/home"
>set cmd3 "logout"
>spawn telnet $name
>expect "login:"
>send "$user"
>expect "Password:"
>send "$password"
>send "$cmd1"
>send "$cmd2"
>send "$cmd3"
I don't see any error when executing, but at the end no file is being
copied. Can you please correct me?
Thank you
