Net::SSH2 - Secure Shell protocol interface =========================================== Net::SSH2 is a perl interface to the libssh2 (http://www.libssh2.org) library. It supports the SSH2 protocol (there is no support for SSH1) with all of the key exchanges, ciphers, and compression of libssh2. At present, libssh2 requires OpenSSL (http://www.openssl.org) and can optionally use zlib for compression (http://www.zlib.net). MODULE DEPENDENCIES To install modules that Net::SSH2 depends upon type the following: cpanm Module::Install Module::Install::CheckLib IO::Scalar Term::ReadKey DEPENDENCIES This module also requires these libraries: libssh2 (http://www.libssh2.org; recommended to use version 1.7.0 or later) OpenSSL (http://www.openssl.org) zlib (optional; http://www.zlib.net) To install dependencies: Debian: sudo aptitude install libssh2-1-dev libssl-dev OpenSUSE: sudo zypper in libssh2-1 libssh2-devel OS X homebrew: brew install libssh2 INSTALLATION To install Net::SSH2 type the following: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install BUGS/FEATURE REQUESTS Please report bugs and request features on the CPAN bug tracking site, rt.cpan.org. If you are able and willing to provide a fix, attach a patch and please provide your name to be credited in the changelog and an email address for verification/discussion. The ssh-sftp-perl-users mailing list (http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/ssh-sftp-perl-users), while set up for Net::SSH::Perl, is also an appropriate place to post questions or comments about Net::SSH2. TESTING You can run more extensive tests with the following command: perl -Mblib t/Net-SSH2.t This will prompt you for a hostname and subsequently a username to test connecting with. You can use localhost, a remote hostname or an IPv4 or IPv6 address. There are some tests (SCP) that require IO::Scalar installed to run. HACKING The module is kept in a GitHub (http://github.com/rkitover/net-ssh2/) repository, git://github.com/rkitover/net-ssh2.git If you are interested in making a change/fix, please discuss it first. If you are unfamiliar with XS (perl C bindings), you should review the perlxs, perlapi, and perlcall perldoc pages to learn more. The secure shell protocol is managed by the IETF secsh working group at http://www.ietf.org/html.charters/secsh-charter.html. The source code of libSSH2 will also be instructive. TODO More examples for the example/ directory would be nice. Add get/put (file) methods to Net::SSH2::SFTP (as a shortcut, rather than requiring open/read/write/close).
