Windows 7 OS: how to terminate the TELNET session through the window handler


  • Hi All,

    I'm using Windows 7 OS and the DOS prompt to start the Tcl/TK script.  What I notice is that I can terminate the TELNET session in Windows XP through the "close" command in the Tcl, which sends an interrupt signal to the Window handler and terminate the spawned TELNET session.

    In Windows 7 OS, the "close" command in the Tcl does close the TELNET session.  However, it does not close the TELNET windows.  Therefore, if I start 100 TELNET sessions and close 100 TELNET sessions, I would still have 100 TELNET session windows that are opened.  The moment that I "exit" or "close" the DOS prompt, then all of these TELNET sessions would close.

    Is there a way for me to close the TELNET session(s) that are started in the DOS prompt with the interrupt signal sending to its window handler in Windows 7 OS?

    Thank you very much for your help.
