Telnet Thomson 585v7: I'm at sea in a coracle!


[link to this post]
 
I have a Plusnet issue 585 v7 and Windows7 Home Premium.

Recently I have expereienced more frequent disconnections. I want to keep a record of the Event Log, but what remains on screen is very time limited. My understansing is that I can get the logs emailed to me somehow through a telnet command to the router.

I telnetted 192.168.1.254 then my router log in user name and password and got a peculiar "picture" and beneath a dotted line "admin>" whence I can proceed no further.

Hopefully someone will be able to give me some guidance, please?

Do you have a copy of the CLI guide?

If not download one and find out the specific instructions needed.

Admin is the level you are at in the CLI, type ? <retn> and it will show commands available to you.

Type a command such as ADSL followed by <retn> and you will move to the ADSL interface set of commands which can be seen by typing ? <retn>. Then ADSL <retn> should give you the ADSL data.

"menu" is probably easier than "?".

"?" is easier than "menu" 3 characters less, make it shorter an quiker also ? near return key.

? = help - a list
menu = a menu you can tab through

Haven't seen a way to email the log, but the telnet command "syslog" may help. You can use it to show the entire log in the telnet window or send it to a syslog client on a specified IP. Can also continually update the syslog client but then it needs to be on all the time.
Note:
It's available in the TG857n haven't checked if it's available in the TG585v7.
Use the telnet command "menu" as it's not shown in the cli reference.
The log is preserved across reboots.
