Scripting commands via telnet?

» close window

The Question is:

Is there such a thing as a telnet script supported by VMS?
I am trying to automate a job that requires a series of commands and inquiries
 to be run on a cisco router.  Can I specify a script to be run by telnet to
 execute these commands?

The Answer is :

  You can do pretty much anything you want with pseudo-terminals, of course.
  You could use a series of rsh or rexec commands, assuming the target
  system supports these protocols.
  You could open the telnet port and write whatever you wanted at it.
