Hello,

The goal is to run some tasks on the MSA2000 from a batch file located a Windows remote host
To automatically logon into the MSA2000 I use this command:
 putty.exe -ssh <host ip address> -l <username> -pw <password>
                        or
plink.exe -ssh <host ip address> -l <username> -pw <password>
This works fine!!
But I'm not able to execute command :
I test first the command through a manual logon session and it works fine but when I want to get this automatically with the following command :
 putty.exe -ssh <host ip address> -l <username> -pw <password> "command"
                        or
 putty.exe -ssh <host ip address> -l <username> -pw <password> -m "file.txt"
where I put the command into the text file
I get an error message which tell me that this is an "unsupported command"

Thanks
S.

start putty and save a session for your remote login, let's assume you name the session FOO
then you can use plink to execute a command as follows

plink FOO pwd

To login it is ok but not to run the commands...So I am using now TeraTerm with its macro features and it is working like a charm
