type

This is passed host or target. Host or target refers to whether it is a connection to a remote target, or a remote host. This opens the connection to the desired target or host using the default values in the configuration system. It returns that spawn_id of the process that manages the connection. This value can be used in Expect or exp_send statements, or passed to other procedures that need the connection process’s id. This also sets the fileid field in the target_info array.
