Hi Experts,

I have a perl script that is using Net::Telnet and it gets as far as teh login prompt.

the session is a specific interface and retruns the following promtps when I telent from any host.

Enter User Name:
Enter User Password:

it my current script, it opens the socket and times out waiting for the proper login prompt.

how can i set my prompt to make this work.

here is a snipit of my code:

 use Net::Telnet ();
   my $username = "fred";
   my $passwd = "flintstone";
   my $ip = 10.1.1.1;
   my $t = new Net::Telnet(Prompt => '/Enter User Name:/ ');
    $t->open($ip);
    $t->login($username, $passwd);

any help here is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

In most cases, you don't have to use Prompt, just simple like:
  $telnet = new Net::Telnet ( Timeout=>15,
                              Errmode=>'die',
                             Port => 23
            );
$telnet->open($ip);
$telnet->print($username);
$telnet->print($passwd);
because the user prompt and password prompt will be sent by the host to you successively right after you make a new telnet to the hosts.
Good luck.
