in reply to using NET::TELNET waiting for login prompt

Did you look at the documentation for Net::Telnet? It gives you several things to try (like using dump_log() or input_log()). If you did use those, what did they tell you? Are you sure that there's just a single space after the < in the prompt? Your regexp will only match a single space and the EOL. If there are no spaces or more than one, it won't match

fnord

    Here's what the input.log shows
    ENTER USERNAME < ^H
      Assuming the ^H at the end is part of the data received by your program, then that's what's causing the failure. You could try
      ... Prompt => '/[\$#%:><][\s\b]+$/ ...
      If that doesn't work, the output from dump_log() might also be helpful.
