The Question is:
I use TCP/IP services for OpenVMS Alpha V5.1-ECO 3 on Compaq AlphaServer ES40
running OpenVMS 7.2-1.
I am trying to use a TELNET command in a command procedure. For example:
$ define/user sys$input sys$command
$ telnet 'ip_address'
The problem is: ip_address is an IP address of an Emulex Communication server
(Performance 4000 Series or Performance 6000 Series). When I connect to the
server I enter the access password and when I am done I press CTRL-] to leave
the Emulex. And now I a
m at the TELNET> prompt. How to avoid this? I tried /nointeractive but if I use
this I can't press CTRL-] to exit Emulex. I want to return to DCL (so the
command procedure can continue) without typing the EXIT command manualy. If I
use /nointeractive I ca
n enter the DISCONNECT command at the emulex but after that I get TELNET errors:
%TELNET-E-INETERROR, Internet interface error
-SYSTEM-F-CONNECFAIL, connect to network object timed-out or failed
This command leaves Emulex but it does not look nice to see such errors on the
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS TCP/IP Services Telnet implementation is intended for
interactive access, please use rsh or rexec or similar protocols
for purposes of scripting commands.
Telnet clients and other program-level scripting-capable client
APIs for OpenVMS can also be available from HP customer services,
and also potentially from other organizations.
