  • it turns out i have to deal with this this week as well. i think this will become an increasingly common problem, and what we should do is fashion appropriate modifications into the command structure of Net::Telnet so it can be used as a drop-in replacement rather than having to rewrite everything via Expect (although that may get called on the backend).. anyway, let me know please if you have made progress on this yet.
    • I'm having the same problem. I have a bunch of Net::Telnet::Cisco scripts that need to be converted for SSH only use; the US DOD mandates that telnet never be used for switch management functions so we're having to convert everything. Did you guys make any headway? I'm not a big fan of expect either...
      • Expect worked fine for us.. but then a co-worker pointed out to me that he got stuck in a similar and got a way out by actually just RTFM. He found the solution in the Net::Telnet [cpan.org] example. It included an example with forking SSH. I still have to implement this solution but it worked for him :)
