Subject Ant telnet task fails to login to a few unix boxes
Date Wed, 19 May 2010 11:56:32 GMT

I am running a simple Ant telnet code snippet to login to a unix box.

<telnet userid="${username}" password="${OS_User_Login_Password}"
server="${hostname}" timeout="30000" initialCR="no">

The above code does not work for the box with the details given below.

In a unix box which displays the following messages while logging in, I am
not quite sure whether this code is standard or not. Can you please suggest
a code that can work for different unix boxes.
