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.

        I've a problem with remote access. I'm telnetting to a pc(let it be 134) through putty. From 134 I'm telnetting to a linux pc(143). In 143 machine i stored all of my tcl files since my pc and 134 are not having tcl installation. from 143 machine 'm running my scripts. The script needs 6 hrs to run completely. there should not be any manual intervention while the script is running. The script will make telnet connection with different routers, send commands to them and then captures their output buffer. Since the console is idle for a long period the telnet connection gets lost and the execution of scripts stops in the middle. Can any one help to fix this issue?
       I guess the telnet connections established by the scripts don't 've any problem. either the telnet from my pc to 134 or telnet from 134 to 143 is getting lost.

Thank you,

How about backgrounding the scripts on 143 (an & on the end of the command line) and redirecting the output to a file.  When you disconnect / timeout the process will continue, and you can monitor it non-intrusively via a tail.  Have a look at at and batch commands on Linux too.
