in thread Telnet over SSH2 from Windows


Plink was nice suggestion because it worked. With command string below, I was able first to establish tunnel via SSH server to the device with telnet and command it with Net::Telnet. The plink command explanation can be found from plink documentation and it is also quite nicely explained in HOWTO ssh port-forwarding.

I am still more than happy to hear explanations why reading during telnet session seems to break the write and if this is somehow doable from Windows.

Thank You
# From DOS prompt, give command below and leave the session open. # Version 0.60 from plink is needed because it contains the -nc # parameter. Version 0.58 did not have this parameter.
