I have another question for u,. As I have explained in my last post (scripts that kill themselves), I´m working on a script that manage telnet connections. The procedure is something like this...
code to be done inside the console
) telnet xx.xx.xx.xx >> destination.txt
By this way I can manage the consoles of the devices in the network, login inside them and extracting parameters in order to monitorize the network.
This code works perfectly if the console responses but if anything fails, the script hangs. If for example I try to enter to one console that is busy by other user, the console doesn´t response but the script is not able to detect it and hangs.
I need to establish any kind of processes control in order to be able to close this sub-procedure if after a time, there is no response. Now, the main script continue running even if the sub-procedure is hanged, but it doesn´t work right since it´s not able to connect to any console, probably because the old connection is still alive.
I´m completely lost and if u can give me some hints or ideas, I will thank a lot.
