It's not a box. it's a communication equipment. ssh doesnt work there.

but nevermind i just did it.

I just create a file

vi filename

write this:
telnet ip

then ln -s filname

Now the only thing is everytime i click to run it, ask me if i wan to run in terminal, run, display or close.

Do i have to always click on Run Terminal?
or theres someting i can do or write in the script?

Try this...


don't you see any menu item like "Link to Application" in context menu (right click menu) of desktop? If it is so, it will show a small diaglog box, there you can enter command whatever you want, no prompting of commandline or not, option to select your own icon for this short cut.. so much...

with wishes,
