in thread Forced to modify perl telnet script to use both telnet and ssh

Using ping first has become a habit for me since all of the devices we use at work respond to pings. We have a longer ssh timeout so when devices really are down, we find out sooner if we ping rather than connecting directly. (The longer timeout is due to some devices running Windows which takes longer to setup the initial ssh connection.)

I did recommend using ssh first.
