how to run a terminal command that will open in a new terminal automatically


Hello,

I am trying to log in into a device.

I have written a script which logs me in into another system,router via ssh.
When go to the router, and I make "show users" I see my new established ssh session on the new VTY. So he makes it subtle.


Code:
#!/bin/bash
#
clogin $1
clogin is my automatic login script, which comes from a Rancid package,it runs on echo,expect. But that's run fine. It also takes the variable. TCP session is established but I do not see it in the new terminal.
That's the main point. I need it to open a new window automatically and to log me in this window.

Hello yes this works fine for a GUI gnome terminal emulator:

Code:
nohup x-terminal-emulator  -e clogin $1 &
tank you so much guys, this script works unless I have route to the desired subnet. I will try to modify it when wee need to use a "hopping station". Then I will post again.
