Hi,

I am doing a telnet to a remote IP via a shell script. Is there a cmd in shellscript wherein I can exit from telnet session and also is there a way to set the timeout?

Thanks,
BV

Setting the user timeout in Linux is a bit tricky. I'd have to google for details myself.

The exit from telnet is simple, though. It's simply end-of-file. If you're running a telnet session from a script, the end of the stdin stream will disconnect. For interactive sessions, type Ctrl-D, just as you would to logout.
