in reply to How to Communicate with linux from windows

Try googling WinSCP. It supports SFTP as well as allowing you to run a command from windows to another SSH host.

Bitvise also has a windows SSH host as well as a client.

If you want support for how to install modules on windows, you need to let us know which version of perl you are using, what have you tried and what errors you encountered.

      How are you trying to install it?

      What Perl distribution are you using?

      i am getting some warnings.

      What warnings?


      When asked what version of perl you are using, besides the version number, it would be helpful to know the flavour, like Cygwin, Strawberry, ActiveState, etc. Do any of these sound familiar to you? Its important to know this because then the other people who are using what you are using can help you better.

      It would also be helpful to know what you have tried. For example, did you type one of the following:

       $ cpan


       $ ppm

      to install modules? Or, perhaps, did you use a GUI?

      You stated that you are getting some warnings. We would like to help you but can't unless you tell us what warnings you encountered.


        Hi Anne,

        I am using ActiveState perl

        I have tried following commands.

        ppm install Net-SSH-Expect-1.09

        getting error

        Downloading ActiveState Package Repository packlist...done Updating ActiveState Package Repository database...done ppm install failed: Can't find any package that provides Net-SSH-Expec +t-1.09
