Thanks, I had already seen that. The problem with the example is it expects the username and password as variables that I'd have to give on the command line which I'd rather not do. Although, maybe I can be a bit kludgey and have a bash script prompt for those and then feed them to expect, which seems a bit messy but I suppose it'll work.
