it states that I am Missing right curly bracket, but I do not even have a LEFT one????
Missing right curly or square bracket at
Yeah, the error message says that if you try to start an anonymous array grouping with a left bracket, the code needs a right bracket somewhere to close it off. You need to read between the lines in those error messages. :-)
Here is your left bracket.
Port => '7300', [Errmode => 'die', Timeout => '9');
#My guess is that it should look like this:
Port => '7300', [Errmode => 'die', Timeout => '9'] );
Also, I don't think you need single quotes around '7300' as 7300 is a number not a string.
