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

I'm trying to run this simple script:
use Net::SSH2; my $server = "123.45.67.89"; my $ssh2 = Net::SSH2->new; die "can't connect" unless $ssh2->connect($server); print "Connected\n"; die "can't authenticate" unless $ssh2->auth(username => 'un', password => 'pw'); print "Authenticated\n"; $ssh2->disconnect();

and getting this error:

Connected Net::SSH2::auth_password: callback must be CODE ref at C:/Perl/site/li +b/Net/SSH2.pm line 295.

I've verified the username and password as well as the server ip address. The error makes no sense to me. Could any of you wise Perl Monks enlighten me?

Thanks, Nicole

    Read again the documentation for the auth method. If you are using password authentication exclusively, you can replace it with
    $ssh2->auth_password('un', 'pw');
