I want to have a script in perl that is running in windows that test the connection to a ssh server.
If the ssh is up and running I need it to display the version.
If ssh timeout I need it say socket timeout after x seconds
If the connection is refused. simple display Connection refused.
I have the following bit of code that displays the version but I do not know how to handle the errors (timeout and connection refused
my $socket = IO::Socket::INET->new(
PeerHost => $np->opts->host,
PeerPort => $np->opts->port,
proto => 'tcp',
timeout => 10,
die "$!\n" unless $socket;
my $output = join '', $socket->getline();
also, the timeout is taking more than 10 seconds..so I do not think that is working.
