putty or ssh auto launcher
I have a some linux routers from which I want to collect logs for as long as I'm at work. (usually done with putty, ssh to ip and tail /var/log/messages. Putty is set to save output to file)
The problem is that they get rebooted o'lot and manually starting logs is error prone (people forget to restart the putty connection).
Do you know of any software or script that could be set up to launch putty whenever an ip is up? (ie: start putty automatically when the linux box replies to ping)
The workstations are windows, so putty is preferred, but I think installing cygwin to use ssh should not be a big problem.
