ACE Module telnet probe

Unanswered Question

I am trying to configure a probe to login to a telnet server with uid = joe and passwd = bloggs.

The server should then send a welcome message 'welcome' which I would like to use as successful response.

Is this config correct to achieve this (running ACE 2.0)?...

probe telnet serverx

     expect regex welcome

     send-data joe\rbloggs\r

I hope this would simulate the user logging in, then the server would respond with 'welcome' and this would be success.

Would this work? I would test this out but I do not have access to test kit :-(

Also, if the server were to send a security warning before the uid/passwd prompt, would this mess things up?

Thankyou for your time,

There is no option for sending any data or checking the response.

The telnet probe sends "AYT (Are You There?) escape sequence" and we just check if we get a reply.

If you need something more specific you should look at the TCL script probes (ie IMAP_PROBE can easily be reused for telnet).
