I think it is simpler to log in with "PASS -c" password for turn on and off the outlets. I made a simplified version, but I may have messed up the argument order:

#!/usr/bin/expect

set timeout 3

if {[llength $argv] == 0} {
send_user "Usage: outlet [1-8] [on|off] \n"
exit 1
}

set onoff [lindex $argv 0]
set number [lindex $argv 1]
set offstring "off"
set state "1"
if { [string compare $onoff $offstring] == 0 } {
set state "2"
}

spawn telnet 192.168.1.30

expect "User Name :" { send "apc\r" }
expect "Password :" { send "apc -c\r" }

expect "APC> " { send "$onoff $number\r" }
expect "APC> " { send "\r" }

Thanks for the script, it was a great help!
