in reply to IO::Select & ssh problem


I'm suspecting that this is a problem having to do with both the perl version, and the ssh versions (near end and far end).

The attached script seems to be working for perl5.8, when speaking between a host running "OpenSSH_5.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7l 28 Sep 2006", and a far end running "OpenSSH_5.2p1-lucent-1".

However, it still fails when trying to run under perl 5.6.1, when speaking between a host running "Sun_SSH_1.1.1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090700f", and a far end running "Sun_SSH_1.1.1".

Update: It seems as though it has to do with the ssh version on the target machine. I've verified that things are working from a Sun_SSH_1.1.1 to a OpenSSH_5.2p1 host.

When I compare the -v outputs of the working versus non-working runs, the thing that is catching my attention is the "debug1: channel 0: write failed" message. Here is a brief excerpt of what I am seeing (in readmore's):

WORKING: ... debug1: Sending command: /usr/bin/ksh -c "cat /etc/passwd" debug2: channel 0: request exec confirm 1 debug2: fd 4 setting TCP_NODELAY debug2: callback done debug2: channel 0: open confirm rwindow 0 rmax 32768 debug2: channel_input_confirm: type 99 id 0 debug2: PTY allocation request accepted on channel 0 debug2: channel 0: rcvd adjust 2097152 debug2: channel_input_confirm: type 99 id 0 debug2: exec request accepted on channel 0 debug2: channel 0: rcvd eof debug2: channel 0: output open -> drain debug2: channel 0: obuf empty debug2: channel 0: close_write debug2: channel 0: output drain -> closed ...

I also notice in the not working case, where the bytes transferred statistics only show data being transferred on stderr. I'm currently trying to figure out how I can access this information. Any pointers are appreciated.

Also, if there is an alternative way of solving this problem, please offer a suggestion. I may not be able to get this to work.
