Folks- It seems that the existing software does not allow you to create an SSH2 connection with a tty setup on the target machine, but does work fine with an SSH1 connection. This bug was identified (an pretty much fixed) a long time ago: This problem is also described at: The attached file is example code that will expose the problem. The fix is pretty much what Quackie tried back in 2003. Here is my version of his code, that seems to make it work on my machine: sub cmd { my $ssh = shift; my($cmd, $stdin) = @_; my $cmgr = $ssh->channel_mgr; my $channel = $ssh->_session_channel; $channel->open; $channel->register_handler(SSH2_MSG_CHANNEL_OPEN_CONFIRMATION, sub { my($channel, $packet) = @_; $channel->{ssh}->debug("Sending remote TTY request..."); # CMV MODS ********* my $r_packet = $channel->request_start('pty-req', 0); my($term) = $ENV{TERM} =~ /(\w+)/; $r_packet->put_str($term); $r_packet->put_int32(0) for 1..4; # For terminal size (I think)... $r_packet->put_str(""); $r_packet->send; $channel->{ssh}->debug("Sending command: $cmd"); $r_packet = $channel->request_start("exec", 0); $r_packet->put_str($cmd); $r_packet->send; # CMV MODS ********* This is from V1.38. I would suggest that final implementation check for the use_pty setting and only execute it if requested by the user. Also retrieving and setting the current terminal size (as implemented in version 1.46 in the shell() subroutine) would probably be a good idea as well. -Craig

I see the latest module contains experimental code to fix this. Any timeline on when it will be declared stable ?

Guys, I tested the "experimental" code in version 1.34 and it seems to be working fine. Can you guys please enable it by default ? Thanks, -Phirince

I just created a public repository from the CPAN snapshots but the said patch is not contained in there. @greg: If you can provide me with your original repo or its patches I can apply them and make another release. Kind regards, Steffen -- Steffen Schwigon <> Dresden Perl Mongers <>
