    This code works for me against a debian etch machine -- should be very similar to another flavor of Linux, though. (You also might consider the Net::SSH module..!):
    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Net::Telnet; my $host = "somehost"; my $username = "test"; my $password = "password"; my $t = new Net::Telnet; $t->dump_log('trace.log'); # detailed packet trace $t->open($host) or die "could not connect to $host: $!\n"; $t->print($username); $t->waitfor('/ssword[:] $/'); $t->print($password); $t->waitfor('/\$ *$/'); $t->print("cp a b"); $t->getline(); # read prompt my $stdout = $t->getline(); print "stdout $stdout\n"; $t->print("echo \$?"); $t->getline(); # read prompt my $exitcode = $t->getline(); print "exit $exitcode\n"; exit($exitcode);
      Ta Thanks ...
