    Hi,

    I want to reboot my adsl modem at specific interval.

    I can reboot the modem manually by issuing the reboot command as
    follows from the command prompt.


    ------------------
    telnet 198.67.1.1
    login:admin
    password:admin
    reboot
    ----------------------


    But i want to make a batchfile or some sort of script/macro to do this
    automatically at scheduled time..

    but in batch file mode the command just doesnt get completed it gives
    some error...


    so any idea how i can give the above commands automatically...

    Help will be greatly appreciated..

    Thanks very much.

    OK, but I'm wondering why.
    There's a problem with that idea.
    There are several problems. Telnet is an insecure way to do things.
    The Win telnet client is not scriptable as is.
    You need more security and you need a scriptable client; presumably a
    free one. Most secure scriptable telnet clients aren't free. TeraTerm
    Pro works for Win98 and I think there's a newer v.

    Expect^1 is an excellent utlities scripting too for *n*x distros.

    There is also a Win port of expect. http://expect.nist.gov/#windows
    Obtaining Expect for Windows

    Interesting about the tools which the nist.gov site has made available
    at their site.

    ^1 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expect Expect is a Unix automation and
    testing tool, written by Don Libes as an extension to the Tcl scripting
    language, for interactive applications such as telnet, ftp, passwd,
    fsck, rlogin, tip, ssh, and others. With Tk, interactive applications
    can be wrapped in X11 GUIs.
