Expect Script to automate Telnet login and Logs to File and Print Output.


Hi I am try to get an expect script to telnet and login to a Panasonic and collect the call log to a file and print the new lines as calls are completed.
I am able to login successfully and write call to a log file, but can not print the output.

#!/usr/bin/expect
#!/home/pi/Documents
spawn telnet
expect "telnet>"
send "open 192.168.0.101 2300\r"
expect "Connected to 192.168.0.101."
send "\r"
expect "*"
send "smdr\r"
expect "Enter Password:"
send "pccsmdr\r"
log_file telnetlog.txt
# timout while testing
set timeout 60
#will never match
expect "salmon*"

Thanks in Advance

Need to use code tags, so its easier to read, like this

Code:
echo "hello world"
Why Telnet? Unless you don't care about security...

Sadly that is what Panasonic use, so I am stuck with it. Only gives read access, no command access.

Cheers

So Panasonic doesn't care about security.

What type of output does it need to display?

When a caller make a phone call you get a line a single line output

I am looking to leave the telnet open for 12hr and print any new line as they appear on a usb epson receipt printer.
Can I run an expect match and send line to printer or should I be looking to print from the capture file. Going round in circle as not sure what the best approach is.
Cheers
