Problem in the Unix Script
Hi All,

Here is my requirement. I want to write out some commands in the particular port (Say, SMTP port). Using script I want to do this. Is there any way that I can do it using Unix script. Or I have to go for some other language like Perl. Thanks in Advance

Do you want to write to a remote port? telnet or netcat will help you do that. netcat is good for scripting, and it can also be set up to listen to a port for incoming connections if that's what you want.

Im working in Solaris 5.6. netcat is not available in this.

Ill explain you the scenario. My Java program is listening in a particular port. I want to write some commands/ just sentences in that port. In java its very easy, ill open the TCP or UDP connection and do this. Here I want it to do with the Unix Script. Can you please help me in this aspect. Thanks

You could just use "telnet" and perhaps "expect" if you want interactivity.
