A quickie on telnet
Very simply, I'm trying to telnet to a site and get some data from a script.
In HPUX, I would do this:
echo "Alinetobesent" | telnet an.address.com 1234
And it would happily telnet to the machine and echo the command, getting me
the results I wanted. This doesn't seem to work under any of the shells I
could find installed in DEBIAN, or any odd variation I could come up with.
Any ideas, or do I have to re-write in C using sockets (bleah)?
