Using SSH or Telnet to Reboot 3600HGV

Using SSH or Telnet to Reboot 3600HGV

Is it possible to log into the 3600HGV with SSH or Telnet and then run a command to reboot the router? I would like to do this so that I can have a server automatically reboot the router when it is unable to ping out to the internet.

 

Thanks

The 3600/3800/3801/3812 gateways do not support SSH or Telnet.

There is a software-actuated reboot capability, but it is only accessible through the web interface.

Yeah. I know about the reboot in the GUI but, that doesn't help me much when trying to automate it.

With some programming tricks, you could automate the necessary postbacks to the embedded web server to get it to reboot, but it's complex. You would have to pull the logon page, post back the proper password with the hidden variables in the web page, then post back the reboot button action.

Scaping and pushing HTML over HTTP is just a little more complicated than pushing text commands over SSH/TELNET.  Especially if the interface stays predictable.
