in reply to Net::SSH::Perl gotcha!

"... but if you don't supply it the username of the user executing the program is used..." Is your username the same locally and remotely?

Though, by my limited understanding of the SSH protocol, that shouldn't make exactly that difference; it should at least go through the next few steps of the connection before failing, if that is the problem. Hmm.

    yes, same user local and remote. it took *hours and hours* to realize that $ssh->login('realme','realpass') wasn't doing the password authentication thing, but that a non-null password was needed for RSA authentication to work.
