C# App & 3rd Party App Integration

Hi All,

Currently I'm working with an NEC IP3000 IPBX telephone system.  To set up an extension you have to do the following:

1) Open the OM Termminal application and connect to the IPBX system.
2) Using a command line interfeace, execute a number of commands.
3) Disconnect and close the application.

I have written a windows form (C#) that takes a number of details about the new extension from the user and I would like to be able to progromatically build and run the commands in OM Terminal.

The only options I can think of are:

1) Build script files and use the OM Terminal executable to run with a script file.  The problem with this is that I do not know what switches may or may not be available.  using om.exe /? does not return anything.

2) Link to the application DLLs (if they exist) and use them to link into the system (linked libraries?), however, I do not know how to go about identifying the correct DLLs and using them.

Thanks.

Here there are my suggestions:

3) Create a process om.exe, redirect the input, output and error streams and control the application writing and reading from those streams.

4) OM terminal uses telnet to send command. So, sniff those telnet packets of the commands your are interested in, and in your application send the packets using sockets directly.

Hope this helps

Could you expand on suggestion 3 a little please?  Also, I sniffed the telnet packets but was not able to replicate, have you any tips for impersonating OM terminal?

Thanks.
