i'd suggest using the 'chat' program in the conserver distribution
(conserver/contrib/chat).  it has a -I flag addition that makes it work
with sockets.  here's an example of someone doing this:


there are other ways as well (echo the right stuff or use expect or
other programs), but the chat program works well for this purpose.

looks like the perle folks disable break by default on the cs9000 (page
106 of http://www.perle.com/support_services/documentation_pdfs/5500049.pdf).
so, just do 'set server break on' and then 'save'.  then you should be
able to use the '\z' break signal in conserver (^Ecl1 by default).
