in reply to sftp connection through perl

It seems the slave SSH client process is asking for some confirmation on STDIN (that's wrong, it should be using /dev/tty). Probably, the remote host key is unknown to it and it is asking you about its validity.

Which SSH software and version are you using (ssh -V)? what is your OS?

The easiest solution to that problem would probably be to install OpenSSH and tell Net::SFTP::Foreign to use it.

    Thanks for repply. Below are the details: On server C ssh : OpenSSH_4.3p2, OpenSSL 0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 01 Jul 2008 OS: CentOS release 5.8 (Final) On server B ssh: OpenSSH_4.3p2, OpenSSL 0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 01 Jul 2008 OS: CentOS release 5.9 (Final)
      Aha, I see what is happening! You are using a custom transport!!!

      Probably, your script is quite old, from the days when Net::SFTP::Foreign didn't support password authentication directly and Expect was used to establish the connection and log into the server.

      Nowadays, you can pass the user and password to Net::SFTP::Foreign constructor and let it handle everything for you.
