( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I too have tried to write an SSH interface to Cisco much like N::T::C (which rocks by the way). Mine was (going to be) Net::SSH::Cisco - until I realized that it was practically impossible as the Net::SSH(::Perl) modules don't really behave the same way as an interactive Net::Telnet session can.

That said, looks like you're using Windows from the "$ENV{'HOME'} = 'c:\strawberry';" line and there are some issues getting Net::SSH::Perl to work on Windows - use search on this site (Net::SSH::Perl windows) to see some of the nodes dealing with this.

Your other option is TFTP the configs off the routers/switches with SNMP (instead of an interactive session to issue the "copy run tftp" command). This of course means you need to be running SNMP on the routers/switches (are you?). Have a look at Cisco::Management and Cisco Router Action Performing Perl Script for help with the TFTP via SNMP route (if that's an option).

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.
