( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hello! This is a repost of a problem that I just can get straightened out. I am trying write a Perl script to log into my router and open and close ports. I am able to log and and move around. I and able to retrieve data like IP address etc. But not able to check a checkbox or uncheck a checkbox. There are no errors, it just doesn't seem to update the checkboxes. As you can see from the code I have tried a few different things, without any luck though. I think that this is the HTML that I am working with.
<td width="10%" align="center"><input type="checkbox" name="EnBt0" val +ue="checkbox" CHECKED > </td>
Can anyone help? Thanks.
