Subject: config file overrides method parameters
Download (untitled) / with headers

When using this module through Net::SFTP, I call it as: my $connection = Net::SFTP->new(SERVER_IP, user => USER, debug => DEBUG, ssh_args => { port => PORT, debug => DEBUG, identity_files => [ IDENTITY_FILE ], use_pty => 0, protocol => '2', }); but since I have something like the following in my ~/.ssh/config: Host SERVER User root HostName IP-ADDRESS Port XXXX ServerAliveInterval 120 The "User root" from the config file seems to override the username passed to SFTP. The end of the output from a failed attempt with debug turned on is: ws-deb-dev2: Will not query passphrase in batch mode. ws-deb-dev2: Authentication methods that can continue: publickey,password. ws-deb-dev2: Next method to try is publickey. ws-deb-dev2: Trying pubkey authentication with key file 'name of private key file' Received disconnect message: Too many authentication failures for root at /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8/Net/SSH/Perl/ line 142 I added the following parameter: user_config => '/dev/null', to avoid this and it worked. Usually, I expect parameters passed to a function to override any config file that it might read. Instead, with the current version I have to look through all the parameters and "reset" them to a sane value. Thanks.
