Does it help to pull the output of tlntadmn into a powershell variable?


$output = & tlntadmn -s all

Thats exactly what I am looking for - thanks.

But one more question, now the contents of the concurrent sessions are in the $output variable. How do i count the number of sessions in the variable ?

No telnet server here, can you post the output of tlntadmn -s all? Please remove personal data.

$output = & tlntadmn -s all 
$output.count 
$sessions = $output.count -3 # remove the header lines
$sessions

Open in new window



should give you the number of lines and number of sessions.
Its not clear from your screen shot if these are blank lines between each session number or if its just a display problem.
If these are blank lines the $session variable needs to be devided by 2

$sessions = ($output.count -3)/2
