reisinge has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello monks, I am using Net::SSH::Expect to connect to a remote host and execute commands there:
use strict;
use warnings;
use Net::SSH::Expect;

my $ssh = Net::SSH::Expect->new( host =>$ip,
password => $pass, user => 'root', raw_pty => 1 ); my$login_output = $ssh->login(); sleep 10; # run arbitrary commands, like$ssh->exec("ls -l /");

I am getting the following error:
SSHAuthenticationError Login timed out. The input stream currently has
+ to the list of known hosts.
at /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1/Expect.pm line 828.
[download]
I even set ~/.ssh/config:
# Bypass SSH key checking
Host *
StrictHostKeyChecking no
UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null
[download]
Can you see the problem? Thanks.

Hi Jose, I ran this successfully:
use strict; use warnings; use Net::SSH::Expect; my $ip ='xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx'; my$pass = 'somepassword'; my $ssh = Net::SSH::Expect->new( host =>$ip, password => $pass, user => 'yagna', raw_pty => 1 ); my$login_output = $ssh->login(); sleep 10; my$who = $ssh->exec("who"); print ($who); \$ssh->close();

Can you try with a login that is other than root? It is possible that you have changed config to allow root access via ssh. Let me know how it goes. Are you using perl on unix Or Perl on windows? Thanks, Yagna
Also can you check out : here . This seems similar to your error message.

 [Corion]: Do you want to launch a script and keep the command prompt/console window open? [Corion]: Do you want to wait for a key press before closing the window? [LanX]: I want the command line in the history [tye]: -Mouse [Corion]: Option a) would mean launching cmd.exe /k c:\path\to\ batchfile- launching-perl- script.cmd. Option b) would be to add pause as the last line of said batch file. [LanX]: First day after holidays ... and already stressed by the fact that colleagues changed stuff without communication ... apparently I'm the only one trying to fight entropy [Corion]: LanX: The command is always in the history if you typed it in before. If you didn't type the command into the command line, it will not be there. I think there is doskey which can stuff command lines into the history LanX damns the cult of CB ;-) LanX WTF WTF WTF [LanX]: please forget my last 3 posts
