in reply to Net::OpenSSH - line breaks and "End of Output"

Can you show us the specific code you are using to run the remote commands?

EOF handling is part of the SSH protocol. There is not any special sequence or prompt to detect when a command is done.

Also, again, enable debugging on the module and show us the output.

    Hi Salva,

    the call is a standard one like:
    @cmdout = $ssh->capture({timeout => 30}, "show version");

    I did send a long run of that by PM - for security reasons.
    I'll post all results of the discussion here asap!

    thanks for that perfect support!!!
      received from Salva:
      The SSH server running on those routers does not follow the standard. Read the entry "Connecting to switches, routers, etc." from the module + FAQ ( for an explanatio +n of what is going wrong. A workaround may be to add a "quit" or "exit" command to explicitly en +d the session. For instance: @output = $ssh->capture("$cmd\nexit\n"); if that doesn't work, try this: @output = $ssh->capture({stdin_data => "$cmd\nexit\n"}); otherwise you will have to use Expect to wait for the session prompt, +send the command, get the output until you get the prompt again and c +lose the connection.

      my @cmdout = $ssh->capture({timeout => $sshtimeout, stdin_data => "\n"}, $sshcmd."\n");

      seems to do my job....
      going on testing ....
