NAME

Net::SSH::W32Perl - MSWin32 compatibility layer for Net::SSH::Perl

SYNOPSIS

 use Net::SSH::W32Perl;

 my $host = 'foo.bar.com';
 my $ssh = new Net::SSH::W32Perl($host, [options]);
 $ssh->login('user', 'password');
 my ($out, $err, $exit) = $ssh->cmd('cat', 'Hello Net::SSH::W32Perl User!');

DESCRIPTION

This module provides limited Net::SSH::Perl functionality under MSWin32 (ActivePerl). See Net::SSH::Perl for a functional description.

When used on non-MSWin32 systems, Net::SSH::W32Perl reverts to traditional Net::SSH::Perl functionality.

SSH2 is the default protocol under MSWin32. Specifying a protocol other than SSH2 will cause SSH2 to die() - see below.

LIMITATIONS

  • SSH2 is the only supported protocol due to Net::SSH::Perl's reliance on Math::GMP.

  • The shell() interface is not supported due to MSWin32's lack of support for select() on non-socket filehandles.

  • The privileged option is not supported - I hope to fix this in a future release.

  • Anything else that doesn't work :)

TO DO

Integrate the Net::SSH::Perl tests, fix privileged, etc...
