( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm sure my question is less about the module, Net::OpenSSH, and more about SSH in general.

I have a script, ScriptA, that SSH's into a machine and executes ScriptB, which also SSH's into a machine to do some work.

ScriptA must call ScriptB, as ScriptA is a sort of workflow framework that our group runs scripts out of.

My issue is when ScriptA SSH's into the machine containing ScriptB and attempts to execute it, I get this error:

Error: could not connect pty as controlling terminal!

Is there a limit to the number of times a script can SSH out , calling other scripts that SSH? Or do I need to override some setting, or pass an option to Net::OpenSSH to allow this?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
