I'm the author of Net::Telnet::Cisco. You can always find the most recent copy at: At the time of this writing, Aug 1, Net::Telnet::Cisco is up to v1.03. Here are some of the nice things about it: 1. The default prompt works for a variety of hosts. I spent the time figuring it out so you don't have to. 2. The error-handling that Net::Telnet provides allows you to call a sub when an error occurs. Net::Telnet::Cisco handles all router-generated errors that match /^%/, which is almost all of them. Still curious? Take a look at the Net::Telnet::Cisco README in to get an idea of what you can accomplish with the module. Future plans: I'd like to include an EXAMPLES section which discusses common tasks (e.g. backing up the running-confg aka performing a write net aka performing a copy) Yours, Joshua

    What needs to be changed in you code to replace telnet with regular console or modem connection? Marek Ptak

    I'm still having problems with Net::Telnet::Cisco when I try to enable. Seems our routers use an extended login for enable which this module doesn't account for. The router doesn't just simply ask for the password but expects the username first. Has anyone gotten around this? Kevin
      Have you found the solution yet? I'm having the same problem. Thx. CL
