Details

I would appreciate the following feature:

a extension to the "new connection" dialog with a checkbox "after connect run macro ..." and a combobox with some user selectable macros (just like the hosts-combo)
plus integration of this feature to the command line.

we have some devices that would require some routine procedure when logging in.
but the ip-adress would almost always be different.
So instead of 'n'-Macrofiles with only different connect statements this would help having only one general purpose macro while making use of the hosts-combo.

a different way to achieve this could be to open the "new connection" dialog from the "connect" command in a macro using a special option - i.e. a "connect /ask_the_user" or sth. similar.

searching the forum with "macro after connect" did not do what i expected it to do. :-)

If you want to connect with SSH, '/ask4passwd' command line option might do the trick.

Example:
inputbox 'input hostname' 'test' '192.168.1.'
host = inputstr
sprintf "%s:23 /nossh" host
conn = inputstr
connect conn

After connect with telnet, Tera Term macro can send/receive line or characters.
See also login.ttl, the sample script.

Example:
inputbox 'input hostname' 'test' '192.168.1.'
host = inputstr
sprintf "%s:23 /nossh" host
conn = inputstr

inputbox 'input login name' 'test'
login = inputstr

inputbox 'input password' 'test'
passwd = inputstr

connect conn
; use login and passwd
