To be more specific:
i try to automate telnet process on window device, using the pexpect
module,
The action can be done by hand (telnet my_window_device) using windows
-telnet-
server, (from a command line from some Unix)
for my understanding the Expect (like) module should works for windows
device , (when i contact the windows device), it is working via Perl
Expect (TCL too), i want to do so by Python.

Jeff (Hi), what is it xmlrpc/Pyro can it help me ???  

Thanks again, Erez
