Need a direction to start this project…
I have a server at a remote location.
I need to do the following
Disconect a VPN
ping the DNS name
Log the IP
log into a telnet
enter log in and password
enter a command
wait 30 seconds
ping the DNS again
log the IP
compare the IP
If the same do it again.
If a different IP than used in the last 24 hours
reconect the VPN
then make into an exe and run it with a time trigger
I need to log the IP and time stamp it, then read the file each time a new one is read.
I started this but got stuck trying to tell it to wait if NO Reply was found in the ping command.
So I got to step 3…
To log into the telnet, what do you use User Interface or Telnet prompt window? You can use the Send DOS Command and send through the corresponding argument to do what you need. Please find a list of the telnet commands here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb491013.aspx Samantha
