telnet session

hi
i am using a telnet session to simulate an authentication mechanism
USER = "user"
PASSWORD = "password"
try:
telnet = telnetlib.Telne t(HOST)
telnet.set_debu glevel(5)
telnet.read_unt il("login: ")
telnet.write(US ER + "\n")
telnet.read_unt il("Password: ")
telnet.write(PA SSWORD + "\n")
except:
print "failed to telnet"
else:
try:
telnet.write("l s\n")
except:
print "cannot ls"
else:
telnet.write("e xit\n")
print telnet.read_all ()
When i purposely input a wrong password, it "hangs" at the login prompt
waiting for
login and Password. The host i am telnetting to is a unix server.
How can i "exit" this login prompt if the user keys in wrong password
in my script?

It looks to me like after you send the wrong password, you send "ls"
without checking that you got back another login prompt. Then the
program hangs because both ends are waiting for input.

Whatever your actual application is, try to avoid doing it this way.

Either do an explicit read_until() for the prompt and fail if it times out or
use expect() to see whether you saw "Password:" or prompt. If you absolutely
don't know what the prompt might be I suppose you could do another
read_until("Pas sword:") and if it times out then assume you got through.

I'm telnetting into a router. Apart from the fact I can't seem to view the output when iniciating the session, I can't match one of the expressions using Net::Telnet. I can telnet into the router manually without a problem. I'm running a sniffer at the same time just to see what's happening behind the scenes. The computer does an ARP request looking for the router's direction, but that seems to be it. I don't think any data actually...

Dear all, Given the following challenge: 1. The application is an exe on a W2K server 2. User logs via telnet to the server 3. After checking the user account and password, a bat file runs cmd.exe that starts the app. 4. The app starts looking for another instance of itself and if it was found it will kill the instance (but not the telnet session that originally started the instance as described in 1. to 3.)
