Telnet action - separate timeout for each line of script
I am sending some commands to telnet and it requires me to define the time in milliseconds. I have a lot of activities on different boxes, so I do not want to measure and fix the time limit. Is that some thing that I could do with out defining the timings?

That is just an upper limit on time to wait for a response, you can set it to a very large value (i.e., 3600000 for one hour) if necessary.

This is something I have asked about before as well... Your suggestion of just defining a large time does not work, since when a telnet command has failed, I do not want to wait an hour for the script to time out !!!

Can you just add some extra parsing that allows you to alter the timeout value on a line per line basis ????

If your already checking for macro syntax (ie %MYMACRO%) embedded within the telnet commands, can you just add suport for seomthing like

<<5000>>make -f

where double angle brackets specifies the new timeout value to be used for that particular telnet command ????

Your request is on our todo list.

This is implemented in v8.4.

Excellent, you finally implemented this !

Time to shell out some $$ for an upgrade to 8.4 then.

Thanks guys, we use the telnet feature a lot and this was the #1 bugbear for us
