Hi Monks

I installed the Net::SSH2 module from PPM and trying to connect to remote unix host from windows OS. After running the below code i am getting Error "LINE : Error: "pwd" is not a recognized command"

Below is the code and also the test result once after running the script.I unable to judge weather the script actually succeeded in connecting the host and failed only in executing the the command which i have assigned for $cmd variable in script.Monks, please assist me to figuring out what is actually happening and correct me where i am doing wrong in the script.This is my first post, please ignore if i have not fallowed any posting standards here.
