IOS is annoying to interact with via scripts. Have fun. I highly recommend Net::Telnet::Cisco. It helps quite a lot with some of the more annoying things.

    thanks for the reply. I just tried with Net::Telnet::Cisco and it works. However there 9k boxes that we have have a prompt of "RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:9K-PO1". For such a prompt my connection is not working. Do you know if there is a fix that I can use for this to work. TIA
      Hi, The regexp that is evaluating the prompt doesn't include the characters ":" and "/" that are present in your router names. So you have to alter the regexp used for the prompt. If you create the Net::Telnet::Cisco object "$obj" you can see what regexp is used with   print $obj->prompt, "\n"; And alter it with   $obj->prompt('/(?m:^[\w.:\/-]+\s?(?:\(config[^\)]*\))?\s?[\$#>]\s?(?:\(enable\))?\s*$)/'); The regexp I used above includes your special characters. So that should work.
