How to execute a command on a remote host using Perl

Home > Search > How-to

The following Perl script can be used to execute a command on a remote host.

use Core;

my $user = "username";
my $pass = "password";
my $host = "hostname of the target server";
my $command = "the command you want to run on the target server";

($stdout, $stderr, $exit) = create_shell($host, $user, $pass);
($stdout, $stderr, $exit) = execute_shell_inline($host, $user, $command);


If you want to prompt a user for input, make sure to use chomp.

my $user = <STDIN>;
