Hello Thobias,

I have tried this but it is asking for password.
What I have did is, in root's home directory:

# vi .netrc
<hostname>    root   <passsword>
#rlogin -l root <hostname>
password:

Any more suggestion.

Thanks

I guess you haven't actually tested that ? From `man netrc`:

  The .netrc file contains data for logging  in  to  a  remote
  host  over  the  network  for file transfers by ftp(1).

To the OP - use ssh instead. If you think you can't use ssh, re-think.
If you *still* think that ssh is absolutely no alternative, take a 
look at expect ( http://expect.nist.gov/ ).

Is that your wanted to automate some procedures that require telnet to other 
server and run some commands? If so, you can use an  "expect" script (expect 
is an command interrupters (like perl, awk ... etc.) using TCL language).

You should really look into using ssh/ssh-agent/+keys

..netrc is for ftp, you have to edit .rhosts

But don't do this. Instead use ssh with public/private keypair.

Suppose you want to login from host A to host B:

- On host A create a ssh keypair:
	ssh-keygen -t dsa -N "" -f $HOME/.ssh/id_dsa

- Copy (or append) the contents of $HOME/.ssh/id_dsa.pub from host A to
  $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys on host B:
	scp $HOME/.ssh/id_dsa.pub USER@HOST-B:.ssh/authorized_keys
								(copy)
	ssh USER@HOST-B "cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys" < $HOME/.ssh/id_dsa.pub
								(append)
  Make sure the $HOME/.ssh directory exists on host B and has permissions 700.

- If you want a passwordless root-login you have to enable direct root-logins
  via ssh. On Host B edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and change the relevant line to
	PermitRootLogin no
  or
	PermitRootLogin without-password
  For details read the manual page sshd_config(4).
  Then restart the ssh daemon:
	svcadm restart ssh				(Solaris 10)
  or
	/etc/init.d/sshd stop; /etc/init.d/sshd start	(Solaris 9)

Hello Daniel,

yep .netrc is for ftp, anyhow thanks for the tips Thobias.  SSH sounds
good, but is there is anyway to pass username and password as a
parameter for telnet or rlogin without interaction of user.  I dont
wanna edit .rhosts.

Thanks,

You don't. You use SSH.

Hello Edward,

I have tried this site " http://steve-parker.org/sh/hints.shtml " and
came across one script.

telnet1.sh :

#!/bin/sh
host=sunfi75
port=23
login=root
passwd=Gan@Kri
cmd="ls /tmp"

echo open ${host} ${port}
sleep 1
echo ${login}
sleep 1
echo ${passwd}
sleep 1
echo ${cmd}
sleep 1
echo exit


#telnet1.sh | telnet

It is working fine and what the problem is,  it exits after 1 second
even when  I commented out the line.
..............
............
#echo exit
..............

Any suggestion  ?


Thanks,

Yes, do as huge suggests and use ssh
:-)

Or, if you really really really want to use telnet, use expect

If it exits not matter what you do, and if you want it not to exit,
then how does that qualify as "working fine"?

The fact of the matter is, it is not working fine, and there is no
way to modify this script to do what you want.  As soon as the script
exits, telnet will get an end-of-file on its standard input, and it
will close the connection and exit.  There is no way to modify the
script to provide an *interactive* login session.

> Any suggestion  ?

Yes, use ssh.  telnet does not have the feature you want.

Most of people know abt ssh and its Automation. There are few case u cant modify a remote server authentication file, so u need a way to pass your username and password while write a non user interactive one script. instead of suggesting a way for that you guys only say ssh and all abt its authentication. All know that, say something if you know more.

I *think* the answer to what you are asking is "expect"[1], but I could 
be wrong, either in that you are actually asking a question or what it 
is about.

I think I landed on the same solution years after you. But fortunately I was able to control the command flow and run the script as it is.

Just reminding you that it's still useful.

Thank You.

I would disagree.  It was a bad idea in 2005, and it's a REALLY bad idea now.

SSH exists and people should use it.  If your organization hasn't updated
their security policies to REQUIRE (not just allow) SSH instead of telnet,
then there's no hope for you.
