I have a problem.

I have an embedded device that does not let me gain access.

ssh is block, but I can telnet into the port, only to
be denied access.
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

VxWorks login:

nothing I try works for an account name
and corresponding password. I'm not sure
if this version (is acually Vxworks ?) is
based on their BSD or Linux based RTOS....

So I need a brute force method to gain access.
It allows about 8 login attempts (60 sec) before resetting:
VxWorks login:

Login timed out after 60 seconds!
Connection closed by foreign host.

Any suggestions to automate this brute force effort?
Maybe a fancy protocol-profiler program to look at the
results of (ICMP) packets[it answers pings] to determine 
the actual underlying OS would be a good first step? 
Other ideas/methods to profile the (RT)OS are of interests to me.
