Talking Telnet does not work very well

Telnet step does not have detailed documentation. I tried a simple rm file command and this says the script executed successfully but never worked. I used SSH mode. The version I tried is 7.7.

Please check if I need to do something else?

In our tests, the attached project produces the expected output of:

Thanks for the reply! I tried the shell script working after installing all the options.

But with respect to the response, I do not see the build handles very well. I need to handle the response in two scenarios.

1. To store the response in the macro
2. How to ignore or handle large chunck of response?

Thanks

The response will be available in the LASTSTEP_OUTPUT macro after the step completes.
http://www.kinook.com/VisBuildPro/Ma...stemmacros.htm

You can use the Read File action or script code to parse or filter the response contents.

For complex scripts, it may be preferable to create a bash script and call that from the Telnet action rather than calling individual commands directly.
