Re: Redirecting to a tcp port



     A TCP port is not a "port" in the sense that a serial device is a 
     port.  An application may access the transport layer (TCP & UDP) using 
     the "sockets" API in which the TCP ports of the client and server 
     machines are specified among other things.  There is no way that I 
     know to do this interactively from a shell.  
     
     It sounds like you want to redirect output to a remote machine that 
     you can telnet to??  If that is the case then I think you are right 
     that this is a job for expect.  I've written expect scripts to do send 
     info over telnet to another machine to accomplish some useful task and 
     it is very capable in this regard.  Maybe if you were more specific 
     about what you're trying to do...

Hi All,
     
This isn't really a Debian question, so please forgive me if I am offending 
anyone.
     
Is there a way to redirect standard out to a tcp port?  Piping to telnet doesn't
seem to work.  This is probably a job for expect or something.  Anyway, anyone 
have any ideas?
     
Thanks!
   Dale
