in reply to How do I connect to cisco pix via ssh?

You'll have to be more specific with your error messages. "it didn't work" could mean anything from "it didn't install" to "my computer caught fire".

Assuming you get it installed, it looks like you should be able to cut and paste the example from the documentation, add the right username and password, and have it work.

You can use ssh itself if you have cygwin installed, but I don't think that is the solution you were looking for.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I downloaded (Net::SSH::Perl) module and tried to connect to remote cisco pix through ssh Following is my script

    use Net::SSH::Perl; $host="IP"; $username = "username"; $pass = "password"; my $ssh = Net::SSH::Perl->new("$host"); $ssh->login($username, $pass); my($stdout, $stderr, $exit) = $ssh->cmd(sh access-list access_inside_i +n); print "output: $stdout\n"; print "Error: $stderr\n"; print "status: $exit\n";
    But while installing GMP with nmake

    perl Makefile.PL


    nmake test

    I got an error saying

    'cl' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'C:\WINNT\system32\cmd.exe' : return code '0x1' Stop.

    what do i do now?

      See tachyon's comment below for the right module.

      On Windows, you want to use PPM instead of CPAN. CPAN only works if you have a full C compiler environment on your system, and most windows boxes don't. If you are using ActiveState Perl (most likely), you should use PPM, there is a FAQ to help get you started.

        I tried to install GMP with ppm but got an error saying

        Error: Failed to download URL GMP.ppd: 404 Not Found

        Thanks and Regards
