plink ssh tool onto an iAP VC+



I am trying to run plink, the ssh command line utility from the putty set, to login to an iAP VC and execute some commands. I have got all the login part working but can't get any of the commands to execute, let alone the pipe to an output file.


plink USERNAME@IPADDRESS -pw PASSWORD  < help.txt >> output.txt


I've followed a lot of online examples but always get an error 137. Looks like the iAP is refusing the passing of the commands?


Any help appreciated.

You would probably want to use TCL/Expect:
