Hello Dave,

objSe.Connect "/TELNET "&IPNumber&" 23"

       If ( objSe.connected ) Then
            i = i + 1
            objse.logfilename = "c:\Switch\"&IPNumber&".Log"
            objSc.WaitForString ":",1
            SelectRow = objSc.CurrentRow 
            Login = objSc.Get(SelectRow, 1, SelectRow, 20)
            objSc.WaitForString "assword:",1
            	 objSc.Send "password" & vbCr
              objSc.Send "sho ver" & vbCr
             objSc.Synchronous = True
             objSc.Send "SHOW Interface" & vbCr
It works until it gets to the "sho ver" or the "SHOW Interface" then it loses the first letter of the command and sends "HOW Interfac which of course doesn't work.

I use the Synchronous true statement and I have set it in numerous places with the same result.

What can I do to make it see the whole command ever time?

Please help!

Normally, the synchronous = true statement should be made as soon as the connection is made, and left set to true in order to avoid missing information that the server may send.

In looking at this code, I noticed that you are calling two separate objects:
Can you tell me how these objects are defined?

It is also possible that SecureCRT is sending the data to fast for the device to pick up the first character. Have you tried to place a sleep statement between the WaitForString statement and the Send statement?

It would also be helpful if we were able to see a log of what is supposed to happen normally. Would you be able to send us a log of a session?

In order to better understand your script, would you be able to send us the complete script?

If so, please send them to me at
