Hi folks, I have two systems running Unix and two systems running "that other" operating system. At the moment I am concentrating on learning as much as i can about unix. On of the things I have been doing that i find helpful is booting system 1 (solaris 8(intel)) then booting system 2 (mandrake 8.0) Then, from Linux, telnet into my solaris machine, cd to a directory 'logs/' then opening vi, and writing a small log file outlining what i hope to do this session and where i got last session. Don't ask me why, but it seems to help me stay focused and on track as i am doing all of this on my own and working construction full time so i cant attend classes or anything. But enough of that, what i want is a script to run on my linux box, as soon as i log in that will telnet into solaris and cd to the log/ directory, then open Vi with the filename in the date format (ie 04.27.2001),naturally, i would have to input usr/pass.
I use bash on both machines if that helps.
What i am not looking for is for someone to write it for me, but to give me some help as i go.
for example, everyone tells me not to use telnet because of poor security, to use SSh instead, can i use this with solaris? is there a better way? I am wondering if i can mount the log/ directory as a network mounted filesystem shared by both machines?
anyway, your thoughts are appreciated.
