|Subject:||Authorization using SSH-Agent|
When using Net::SSH::Perl, you can login to a remote host without supplying credentials by using an SSH agent. This functionality does not exist in Net::SSH2 The circumstance involves loggin into server X from a local machine running ssh-agent and agent forwarding. Server X gets the users credentials from the agent; when the user tries to connect from server X to another server, agent forwarding allows the user access to the next server. Perl scripts written using Net::SSH::Perl could take advantage of this funcionality to administer many machines from Serveer X. You cannot duplicate this behavior using Net::SSH2, but it sure would be nice to be able to.
