Re: [QF-Test] Any support for windows based SSH or Terminal from within QFTest

Hi Sean,

last time I looked there wasn't ssh support in Jython and telnet
didn't work due to lack of native modules. With Jython 2.5, telnet
might work, but I don't think ssh is an option.

You can always look for native Java libs that can handle ssh or telnet
and use Jython to work their API. If security is not an issue, there's
a Java-based telnet server called PWTS that works well on Windows.

On the other hand: Instead of scripting all that yourself, why not use
expect itself on the target machines and just run expect from QF-Test?
It should even be possible to run the QF-Test daemon on the remote
hosts and use the qfs.daemon.startRemoteSUT procedure to launch the
expect script, then wait for it to finish, handle its exit code and
output just as if it were a locally started process.

Best regards,
