There is no info on the software if i can do that.
You've been using Linux for eight years now...have you not written any scripts at all? Using expect would come to mind, since it's written just for cases like this, to simulate user input. There are many examples you can find with a brief search, both on Google and on this site.
And since you don't say what version of RHEL, or what this software is, there's not alot we can help with as far as options go. It could be you could extract the software to a directory, and bypass a bunch of the scripting.
