Telnet Action

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The Telnet action creates a step to execute a script on a remote computer that supports Telnet or SSH sessions.


When the step completes, the following temporary macros are created or updated:

TELNET_HOST_FINGERPRINT = The host key fingerprint (for SSH connections only)


Telnet tab


Script tab


Security tab



See the Network sample for an example of the Telnet action.
RSH.exe can also be used from the Run Program action to execute a command on a remote computer running the Remote Shell service.  Parameters can be passed to the remote command or script, or the FTP action can be used to send a custom script and then execute it remotely.
