Logging Putty Output using vb6

Last Modified: 2020-03-06
I need to log a putty session using vb6.  I am able to initiate Putty using the following:

Shell "C:\Program Files\PuTTY\putty.exe telnet:192.168.1." & sWhichBox & ":10001", vbNormalFocus

Now I need to direct the output to a specific file in a specific directory using vb6.  The location  will look like this: sPath & "trident_" & sWhichBox & ".log"

I would really appreciate any assistance I can get with this?

Thank you very much!!
