Command List Edit

Use the Command List Edit dialog box to create a login, a logout, or a move cursor command list to be saved in the model file. To view a detailed example of a login and logout command list, see the Pine model example.

  2. In the Session box, select the terminal type from the Type box.
  3. Type the host name or IP address in the Host name or IP address box and click Connect.
  4. On the Model menu, point to Record and click Start Recording.
  5. Type your username and password and advance to the next screen.
  6. On the Model menu, point to Record and click Stop Recording.
  7. On the Stop Recording dialog box, select Save as login command list and click Save to open the Command List Edit dialog box.
  8. View and edit the commands associated with the login command list that you've just created in the Commands box and click OK to save it.
  9. To view and edit the login command list, use the buttons next to the Login (after host connect) box in the Model Properties dialog box.
  10. To execute your login command list, disconnect and then reconnect to the host, and click the Execute login command list button on the standard toolbar. Alternatively, you can open the Model Properties dialog box and click the Execute button.
