Re: >Windows filename troubles with Net::SSH2

in reply to >Windows filename troubles with Net::SSH2

If I understand correctly, the SSH server is running on Windows and the transfer script (which is running on Linux) obtains the file from the Windows machine using scp_get().
This could mean that the problem is with the SSH server on the Windows machine, and nothing to do with perl at all.
A small example script that demonstrates the problem might help.

I couldn't find any such problem when using a Net::SSH2 script (run on my Windows machine) to scp_put() the file onto my Linux machine. I ran this:

## scp.pl ## use strict; use warnings; use Net::SSH2; die "Usage: perl scp.pl username password" unless @ARGV == 2; my $host = '192.168.0.101'; my $user = $ARGV[0]; my $password = $ARGV[1]; my $ssh2 = Net::SSH2->new(); $ssh2->debug(1); print "\nconnecting to $host...\n"; $ssh2->connect($host) or die $ssh2->error; print "\nauth to $host...\n"; $ssh2->auth_password($user,$password) or die $ssh2->error; printf "Auth OK: %s\n", $ssh2->auth_ok; print "scp put\n"; my $ret = $ssh2->scp_put("rub'bish.txt", "/home/sisyphus/Downloads/rub'bish.txt"); print "ret: $ret\n"; $ssh2->disconnect();
It transferred rub'bish.txt from the windows machine to the Linux machine just fine.
Unfortunately my Windows machine doesn't have an SSH server so I can't try doing it the "other" way.

Cheers,
Rob

    thats correct the windows machine is running an ssh server, I had setup a widows test environment and ran your code on the linux end of this setup - and no issuesrunning your code on linux shows no issues. made some minor changes and to your code (listed below), and placed a copy of the file, that caused the issue initially, on the windows host to demonstrate the failure.
    ## scp.pl ## use strict; use warnings; use Net::SSH2; die "Usage: perl scp.pl host username password" unless @ARGV == 3; my $host = $ARGV[0]; my $user = $ARGV[1]; my $password = $ARGV[2]; my $ssh2 = Net::SSH2->new(); $ssh2->debug(1); print "\nconnecting to $host...\n"; $ssh2->connect($host) or die $ssh2->error; print "\nauth to $host...\n"; $ssh2->auth_password($user,$password) or die $ssh2->error; printf "Auth OK: %s\n", $ssh2->auth_ok; print "scp put\n"; my $ret = $ssh2->scp_put("rub'bish.txt", "rub'bish.txt"); print "ret: $ret\n"; $ssh2->disconnect(); ### print("...\n\n"); $ssh2=undef; $ssh2=Net::SSH2->new(); $ssh2->debug(1); $ssh2->connect($host) or die $ssh2->error; $ssh2->auth_password($user,$password) or die $ssh2->error; $ssh2->scp_get("rub'bish.txt", "more-rub'bish.txt"); printf("SSH Error (%s): '%s' - '%s'\n",$ssh2->error); $ssh2->disconnect(); print("...\n\n"); $ssh2=undef; $ssh2=Net::SSH2->new(); $ssh2->debug(1); $ssh2->connect($host) or die $ssh2->error; $ssh2->auth_password($user,$password) or die $ssh2->error; $ret=$ssh2->scp_get("06 School's Out.mp3", "06 School's Out.mp3"); printf("SSH Error (%s): '%s' - '%s'\n",$ssh2->error); $ssh2->disconnect();
    and the terminal out is

    then checking out the windows directory listing, shock-horror-wtf, brings to light the obvious, there is some extra quoting going on somewhere. The original windows machine in question is a hub of sorts serving a number of clients (windows) who dont have this issue.

    thank you to syph... your response prompted me to some usefull action, making the problem a little clearer...
