Telnet Scripting Tool Tst10 with multiple hosts automaticlly

I am working with the Telnet Scripting Tool for windows, Tst10 which is working well for conneciting to ONE host and saving the output...

But has anyone done anything with it so that it will call a host file to connect to multiple hosts in a row and keep the output to a file going, then giving the ability to parse through the output file later...

For example:

i have 10 switches i want the Telnet Tool to telnet to each IP run the commnad and save to the same output.txt file, either by calling a hostfile or incrmenting the last octect of the IP address, something of that nature...

Any one done anywork like that with this specific tool or another standalone tool...For reasons i dont need to go into i do not have any unix/linux and cannot use expect or perl to do this type of thing...I need a small windows application that can do this with little overhead...

and i am not trying to reinvent the wheel...just do it cheap and easy...

Thanks for your time Garry...

thanks javajws for your suggestions, while i didnt use them it got me thinking and was a help...

I just stuck with batch jobs and created 255 separte config files and then used a nifty little tool called TEXtools (http://www.fireflysoftware.com/index.htm) to pipe through them and do a Replace String to change the commands inside each .txt config file for the TST10 tool to use...

thanks..
Garry
