Since it sounds like you'll need to your script to interactively respond to the remote device, I think that you need to use something like Expect.

I personally have never used expect, so I can't offer up more details on how to use expect. Based on my limited knowledge of expect, I believe that it can be used to issue a command, what for a specific response, and then issue another command based on the response received.

    Ok I'll give it a try, Im pretty stumped right now.

    There is actually a module out there that does what I am trying to do called Net::Telnet::Cisco

    It supports an enable feature specific for Cisco $session->enable("enable_password")

    This would do the trick but the problem is our Ciscos are running SSH not Telnet so I am using Net::SSH::Perl which does not have the same enable option as N::T::C

    Is anyone aware of a way I could modify the NTC module to use SSH instead of telent?
