Custom tools in Dude!

Fri May 04, 2007 5:42 am

If possible, pls a wishlist for custom tools for device, such as Remote Desktop connection, VNC Viewer, Radmin, etc.
Currently, from tools only: WinBox, Telnet, etc.
Thx.

Feature is already there

You can already do this. Just double click tools on the left and you can add all the custom tools you want. I have them for remote desktop, VNC, SSH, and a few custom URLs. You may have to find out how the commands work though. with vnc you can just put
vncviewer [Device.FirstAddress]
but for remote desktop you have to use
mstsc /v:[Device.FirstAddress]

Is it possible to send a terminal command with a custom tool? I get an error no matter what command I try to push.

Example: "/system reboot" (Yes I know there is a reboot option this is just an example)

CR24,
/system reboot
Command/Tool you defined is started on your local PC.

If you want to run a command on remote device from Dude, you may try:
plink.exe [Device.FirstAddress] -P 22 -l [Device.UserName] -pw [Device.Password] "/system reboot"
Thank you!

CR24,

Dude client should be able to run plink.exe, it should knot full path to it.
For more information, please see The_Dude_v6/Tools

Thank you!

CR24,

1. Download plink.exe https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgt ... atest.html
2. Place it in desired location, for example in C:\Tools
3. Create a custom tool:
C:\Tools\plink.exe [Device.FirstAddress] -l [Device.UserName] -pw [Device.Password] "/system reboot"
You also may copy plink.exe in Dude client folder and in such case you can use it without full path.

Thank you!

One more thing. Is there an argument to have plink run silently?

Not exactly suprising is it, since you have a space between "Program" and "Files" ?

Yeah I noticed "Files" was in purple so I made a new folder and it worked. Guess ROS/Dude doesn't like spaces in paths.

CR24,

Patch with spaces should be quoted:
"C:\Program Files\PuTTY\plink.exe" [Device.FirstAddress] -l [Device.UserName] -pw [Device.Password] "/system reboot"

Of course it doesn't. How would it know?
A space is used as a separator between the various parameters, so it's perfectly obvious that you can't use one in a path name.
Blame those idiots at Micro$oft for the stupidity of putting spaces in path names.
