WELCOME TO SCRIPT TIPS!

Tired of having to perform the same tedious steps every time you wish to log on to your remote computer? How about those tasks that must be performed every morning after logging on? Why not have QWiTS do the work for you?

Follow the example below to learn just how easy it is to automate the log on procedure with QWiTS.


Automating the Log On Process

QWiTS directory entries can be defined with a startup script to automate your logon to the remote computer. Depending on your use of the remote system, you may extend the startup script to include commands done after the logon process.

Step #1

Using any Windows text editor, (i.e. NotePad), create a file containing the text you would normally type after connecting to the remote system.

Script files should be named as FILENAME.scp and need to be saved as text files. In the example above, the login name is 'jennifer' and the password is 'dalmations'. Save the text file with your script information in the same directory as QWiTS, or, in any other directory.

Step #2

On your QWiTS directory entry, use the Script box (A) to select your saved script. You may need to use a startup delay (B) to allow time for the connection to be made prior to automated log on being done.

That's It!

Each time you connect using this directory entry, the login script would be automatically executed!
