How do I configure an automate login process? 
  
answer

PowerTerm can easily be setup to automate the login process, so that all steps necessary to login to a host computer can be activated via a script. Here are 2 sample login scripts, one for a modem connection and the other for a telnet connection:

 

MODEM CONNECTION
send "atdt1-212-872-8181^M"
wait 30 for "CONNECT 9600"
send "^M"
wait 10 for "login:"
send "joseph^M"
wait 10 for "Password:"
send "cotten^M"

TELNET CONNECTION
wait 10 for "login:"
send "wesley"
wait 10 for "Password:"
send "snipes"

In the above examples,

  • The send command sends the following string to the host.
  • The `^M` means the caret character followed by the letter `M`, and it represents the newline/Enter key.
  • The wait command causes the script to pause until the indicated string is received from the host.
