Net::CLI::Interact::Transport::Telnet - TELNET based CLI connection
This module provides a wrapped instance of a TELNET client for use by
On Windows platforms you must
download the "plink.exe" program,
and pass its location to the library in this parameter. On other platforms,
this defaults to "telnet".
Based on the "connect_options" hash provided to Net::CLI::Interact on
construction, selects and formats parameters to provide to "app" on
the command line. Supported attributes:
- host (required)
- Host name or IP address of the host to which the TELNET application is to
- Port number on the host which is listening for the TELNET connection.
Defaults to 23.
- If you want to pass any other options to the Telnet application, then use
this option, which should be an array reference.
On Windows platforms, each item on the list will be passed to the
"plink.exe" application, separated by a single space character.
On Unix platforms, if depends whether you have IO::Pty installed (which in
turn depends on a compiler). Typically, the Net::Telnet library is used
for TELNET connections, so the list can be any options taken by its
"new()" constructor. Otherwise the local "telnet"
application is used.
- Only used on Unix platforms, this installs a signal handler which attempts
to reap the "ssh" child process. Pass a true value to enable
this feature only if you notice zombie processes are being left behind
