The methods login() and cmd() use the prompt setting in the object to determine when a login or remote command is complete. Those methods will fail with a time-out if you don't set the prompt correctly.
Use a combination of print() and waitfor() as an alternative to login() or cmd() when they don't do what you want.
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
