After searching the net looking for my answer, I post here to ask the question:
I'm trying to write a script that will retrieve files automatically config routers on my network. I want it automatically executes what I do by hand.
This is the algorithm:
Connecting telnet 192.168.1.1
Write "copy running-config tftp"
In bash, it would:
eval "copy running-config tftp"
I scored "eval" command by default, obviously it does not work. Do you know a command to automate this task? I heard about the language but I would expect whether it is possible to do in Bash script initially.
Normally it is in deposits, a simple apt-get (or aptitude) should suffice - \
Edit: On a Ubuntu 8.10:
