Net::Telnet::Cisco::IOS -- Manage Cisco IOS Devices

Net::Telnet::Cisco::IOS (NTCI) is an extension of Joshua Kereos's Net::Telnet::Cisco module and provides an easy way to manage and monitor Cisco IOS devices. I'll mention this a lot, but make sure you read up on Net::Telnet::Cisco for a lot of information.

NTCI can do a lot, but it's not the best way to do all of it. I'd suggest you take a look at some SNMP solutions. It's up to you to figure out when and where you want to use it, but don't say I didn't warn you. :)

There are way too many methods to list here, so head over to for a full list with documentation.

        use Net::Telnet::Cisco:IOS;
        # Connect and login
        $connection = Net::Telnet::Cisco::IOS->new( Host => 'hostname');
        $connection->login( Name => 'username', Password => 'password'  );
        # Get the IOS version
        if ( $ver = $connection->getIOSVer() )  {
                print "The device is running version " . $ver . "\n";
        else  {
                print "Can't get the version:\n";
                print $connection->errmsg();
        # Close the connection
