A few thoughts, dmckee, worth exactly what you paid for them:   {grin}
  • Google search on the error message turns up nothing.   Darn.
  • I try to use cmd(); instead of print().   You've probably already perused it, but this is from Net::Telnet pod's examples:
    use Net::Telnet (); $host = new Net::Telnet (Timeout => 30, Prompt => '/[%#>] $/'); $prompt = '_funkyPrompt_'; $host -> open($hostname); $host -> login($username, $passwd); $host -> prompt("/$prompt\$/"); $host -> cmd("set prompt = '$prompt'"); $host -> cmd("..."); $host -> close;
  • It doesn't appear very relevant, but here's what I could find in the pod about block size.
    max_buffer_length - maximum size of input buffer $len = $obj->max_buffer_length; $prev = $obj->max_buffer_length($len); This method designates the maximum size of the input buffer. An error is generated when a read causes the buffer to exceed this limit. The default value is 1,048,576 bytes (1MB). The input buffer can grow much larger than the block size when you continuously read using getline() or waitfor() and the data stream contains no newlines or matching waitfor patterns. With no argument this method returns the current maximum buffer length set in the object. With an argument it sets the maximum buffer length to $len and returns the previous value.
  • Maybe you've uncovered a glitch with that server, or a bug in Net::Telnet.   If nothing else, the module author, Jay Rogers, invites comments or suggestions.
