    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?

[Corion]: Meh. I get the feeling I should post a call-to-action for people to test their modules with the upcoming 5.26 (or 5.25.latest), as it seems that the smoke testers don't really weed out modules that fail without . in @INC
[Corion]: But without instructions on how to easily test things yourself, I don't think such a call to arms is helpful
[Corion]: (this post on / p5p makes it seem to me that smoke testers seem to have a blind spot there)
[Corion]: Hmmm. Maybe setting $ENV{PERL5LIB}=" some path without dot"; perl Makefile.PL; make test already is enough to locally test your module...
[Corion]: Meh, no, will need a BEGIN hook...
[Corion]: ... and PERL5OPT does not like -e in it :-(
