Switching Machines Automatically


So I am testing Websites on different Environments/Machines by connecting through VNC. Each MAchine has installed different sets of Browser versions.

Is there a way to Automate switching machine, where I can start the whole suite and it will connect to one machine finish testing and then connect to the next machine and test the website on that.


You can change connections at any time by using the connect command. In this way you can cycle through as many machines as you want. Keep in mind that if you won’t be coming back to a connection you should use the disconnect to close the current connection.

However if you ARE switching back and forth, say to test two ends of a peer-to-peer connection, then you can keep both connections open and use subsequent connect commands to switch between which one is the active connection.

These commands are fully documented in the Eggplant Reference Manual.
