Configuring the UNIX Session-based CLI adapter

In a UNIX environment, you provide the initial command as a Telnet command, which opens a sub-shell. Subsequent commands execute in the sub-shell in a session. You can specify the command at the command level or at the command-group level.

The console prompt appears when the system is waiting for a command. This prompt indicates that a command has been executed.

The following figure shows a sample configuration of the UNIX Session-based CLI adapter with prompt.

    <command prompt="$">test</command>
   </initial-command>
   <prompt>$</prompt>
</config>

The following figure shows a sample configuration of the UNIX Session-based CLI adapter with expect.
