Interfacing the WEB server with TCL

Posted by ankur.vachhani (ankur.vachhani), 15 May 2007
Hi,

I am using TCL/TK(8.0 with Expect 5.21) for test automation for devices in LAN.  

I am running my script from one machine which would configure devices connected to it through LAN (most devices are done through telnet)

Some devices have only WEB service running (no telnet), I need to send data (interface) to WEB service of that device.

How can I do this with TCL/TK?
Please help ASAP.

Yes, telnet to port 80 on the device and talk in http protocol.  There's a fist example here on our website.

Thanks a lot Graham  
I got that now.

But I landed in another trouble... WEB service I am interacting asks for username and password. so Just telnet $host 80 says "connection resfused"  

How do I pass username and password ?

Have a look at / program in authentication prototcol.   I don't have an example in expect, but you should do well statring at the Apache description of the protocol and headers required at http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/howto/auth.html
