Re: Scheduling PIX commands

IR, 

Check out the scripting language: TCL/Expect. The following URL has some
information about it. There is also a good O' Reilly book about Expect. 

http://wiki.tcl.tk/201

I've used it a lot for command-line scripts using menu-driven and
CLI-driven 
interfaces. I've also scheduled the scripts (batch files).

Hope this helps.

Subject: [fw-wiz] Scheduling PIX commands

Hi all,

We've just made some changes to our PIX config, and we need to clear
the xlates to make the changes fully live.  The only problem with this
is that we also have another system that will react badly (to put it
mildly) to the state of all its connections disappearing when we do
this.  This system gets an hour's downtime at 2am, so the ideal time to
clear the xlates on the PIX seems obvious.
The only problem is that, although I'm mainly nocturnal, I really can
think of better things to be doing at 2am than sitting in our server
room.  Does anyone know of a way to schedule commands to run at a
specified time on a PIX 6.3 firewall?

Ta,
IR.
