just wondering if any of you have any experience using this SSH component with Guardian on Tandem/HP NonStop?
I currently have a VB app that connects via underlying telnet (w3sockets) component. This provides a telnet shell which my code uses to send commads and receive responses.
The VB program connects to the Tandem , starts a TACL session and logs in. It can then run a small number of user selectable Macros (scripts) which in turn execute native TAL programs to query various Enscribe files on the system. Results are returned
across the stream (since they write to the terminal(console)) and are parsed/displayed as appropriate by the VB code.
Anyway, Our security guys want to disable telnet on the box in favour of SSH but I have been having trouble getting a working SSH solution for our query tool. With this SSHClient componet, I can connect to the system, log in, change password etc as
required. However, when I try to run one of our Macros, the underlying program retuns an error.
If I connect to the system via normal ssh progam (we use Reflections & OutsideView), I can execute the exact same macro no problem... results returned are as expected.
I suspect the problem is that this SSHClient component does not really create an interactive session when you log in... and our TAL programs do not have a termal to write their output to (they specifically write to the users HOMETERM). There is probobly
something we can to in TAL code to get around this - guardian built in programs seem to be able to run fine... so i'm guessing the do something other that write to the explicit home term... however, TAL is a bit of a black art to me and I dont know how to
fix those programs...
Have any of you worked with SSH & Guardian? any suggestions on how to continue?
ps... that was a very rambling post... sorry about that!
