in reply to Want to communicate status of the last command to Windows machine

The environment variable %ERRORLEVEL% typically contains the exit status of the last running process. I say typically as it's up to the executable to properly exit with an actual error code.

    Right vladdrak So the problem is that how to bring that exit status back to my Windows machine, through the code above I am just telnetting to a remote machine and executing a command der Now I want to bring back the status of the process back to the Windows machine and that is the issue....!
      This code works for me against a debian etch machine -- should be very similar to another flavor of Linux, though. (You also might consider the Net::SSH module..!):
      #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Net::Telnet; my $host = "somehost"; my $username = "test"; my $password = "password"; my $t = new Net::Telnet; $t->dump_log('trace.log'); # detailed packet trace $t->open($host) or die "could not connect to $host: $!\n"; $t->print($username); $t->waitfor('/ssword[:] $/'); $t->print($password); $t->waitfor('/\$ *$/'); $t->print("cp a b"); $t->getline(); # read prompt my $stdout = $t->getline(); print "stdout $stdout\n"; $t->print("echo \$?"); $t->getline(); # read prompt my $exitcode = $t->getline(); print "exit $exitcode\n"; exit($exitcode);
        Ta Thanks ...
