Net::SSH::Any::Backend::Sexec_Cmd - Backend for Bitwise's Tunnelier sexec tool


  use Net::SSH::Any;

  my $profile_path = "C:\\Documents and Settings\\JSmith\\My Documents\\$host.bscp";

  my $ssh = Net::SSH::Any->new($host, backends => 'Sexec_Cmd',
                               backend_opts => {
                                   Sexec_Cmd => { profile_path => $profile_path }
  my $output = $ssh->capture("echo hello world");


This module implements a Net::SSH::Any backend using the obscure Bitwise's Tunnelier utility sexec.

Together with the Plink_Cmd backend this is probably one of the easiest ways to get a working, password authenticated SSH connection on Windows.

The biggest downside is that Tunnelier is a commercial application and you should pay for it if you use it for business.

One very nice feature of this backend is that you can use the host profiles created with the Tunnelier application to define connection parameters, specially authentication items as passwords or kerberos configurations.


The backend accepts the following custom options:

profile_path => $path

Uses the profile defined in the given file to set the connection options.
