Telnet from ruby gives 'waitfor' error


#1

Hi all,

I was trying to use “Telnet” from ruby as per the doc and below is the
sample/simple program, when we execute this, i get the below output. The
line ‘login:db2admin’ displays immediately and it pauses for sometime in
the ‘password:’ and after few seconds i get something like ‘waitfor’…

Not sure what should be the problem and how should we correct it? Any
ideas?


require ‘net/telnet’

tn = Net::Telnet.new({}) { |str| print str }
tn.login(“db2admin”, “db2admin”) { |str| print str }
tn.cmd(“date”) { |str| print str }


OUTPUT

Trying localhost…
Connected to localhost.
