( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I am currently using IO::Socket::SSL to create the Socket connection between the two machines. I will try OPEN a file handler for the tar command and see if I can get it to the other end compressed.

Using Expect would be fine if I were at home and didn't really care for password protection. However, I do not like leaving passwords in files that could later be broken into, even with file permissions and what not.

netcat could have been a usable solution, but I don't think a secure SSL socket can be create in perl with it. I will have to look into this more to see if this could actually be done.

Thanks, everyone for the ideas.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
