For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.

Looks like an installation problem.   How does Expect come in to this?

Hi graham

Thanks for the reply .Ping is part of the expect script and the warning msg comes only if i run as part of the expect .

When i ping manually there is no warning message .

So how does telnet come into the equation?
