    So, have you checked that the prompt you get from the Windows machine is the prompt you have defined? Have you looked into the debug options that Net::Telnet has? What happened when you tried them?

      Hi Corion

      ya i looked at code.I changed my code like this

      use Net::Telnet(); $telnet = new Net::Telnet (Timeout => 10, Prompt => '/\$ $/i'); $telnet->open(host=>'', Port => 80); $telnet->login('username', 'password'); print $telnet->cmd('who');

      Is this correct one?If it is correct Still i am getting Same error

      Can You give me idea to connect remote desktop connection using mstsc



        Can you connect using telnet from the Windows command prompt?

        Update: are you the same Senthil who asked about mstsc here?
