Hi Monks -

From my Linux box I'm trying to use Net::SSH::Perl to run a command on a remote Windows box running OpenSSH-3.1 and the CygWin environment. From Linux if I do 'ssh -2 -l configadm <windows ip> "/bin/ls /"', everything works perfectly, so I would think the following code should also work:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use Net::SSH::Perl; use strict; my $ip = "<windows ip>"; my $pw = "<password>"; my $user = 'configadm'; my $ssh = Net::SSH::Perl->new($ip, protocol=>2); my ($stdout, $stderr, $exit); eval { $ssh->login($user,$pw); ($stdout, $stderr, $exit) = $ssh->cmd('/bin/ls /'); }; if ($@) { die "@@@@@ failed login or command problem"; } print $stdout; exit 0;
The problem is that nothing ever comes back over the ssh session, so $stdout does not get populated. If I execute the same code against a unix box running openssh then everything works perfectly. So, I'm left with either a bug in Net::SSH::Perl, a bug in CygWin, or a bug in OpenSSH for windows or some combination. It works from the command line though, so where does that leave us?

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
