Hi Folks,
I'm quite inexperience in shell scripts. I've a situation wherein i want to a telnet to another server through my shell scripts, and do some stuffs and come back. Now my problem how to supply login and passwd in shell scripts, so that it does not ask user to type in the user id and passwd. Let me know if any of you know about this.
Hope to hear from you guys.

Have you ever heard of a program called "expect"?


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
