This one is exactly the same as the last. Thanks for trying.

Right. I might have been wasting your time by not reading your code.

The "old" dlogin used to have separate checks for different forms of the
"More" prompt I think? The new one looks to just have a check for
"More:"? My prompt on the 6248 looks like "--More-- or (q)uit".

Without really understanding what it does, I've put the following in and
now it runs succesfully for both types of switch - though still with the
"needs an extra 'quit'" issue on the 6248.

-re "^--More-- \[^\n\r]*" {
  send_user -- "$expect_out(buffer)"
  dsend " "

Just now my "dev" devices are being used for another project, but in a
few weeks time that ought to be possible if still wanted.
