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

Hi, I am currently working on some automation task, where I need to copy a file from a windows server(eg.. \\server123\loc) to local machine. The server m/c requires authentication. Can anyone please suggest me if any perl modules are there or any way I can do the copy?

      If you are running it from a linux local machine,

      use expect;

      and crontab to schedule it.

    Start this task with credentials of user who has access to this computer via task scheduler.

    You are looking for the Connect routine in the Win32::FileOp module.

    This will allow you to authenticate to Windows shares. You might also be interested in Map which would allow you to create a mapped drive to copy to.

      Thanks for the solution.
