Help required for SFTP code in Perl..urgent !!! Can't Post

Hi all,

I am supposed to write a perl code that uses SFTP to transfer one file from my server to another server.

The arguments are supposed to be read from a separate configuration file.

The name of the config file is interface.cfg, and the name of the main perl file is


Configuration file format:

# Ftp to machine - interface
hash_ref_Ftp_address= <server address>
hash_ref_Ftp_user= <user_id>
hash_ref_Ftp_passwd= <password>


(Currently I am using FTP...)

Now I want to make this into an SFTP with RSA key(s) included. How should I add the argument?


Perl file format:

I am currently taking parameters like these-

{$ FTP_address}->{FTP_user}=<value>

Similarly I need to take keys as parameters from the configuration file.



How would I create an SFTP connection and how would I log in? and How would I take keys as arguments?

This are the commands I need to execute:

my $sftp = Net::SFTP->new($v_sftp_address, Debug => 1,..)

$sftp->login($v_sftp_user, $v_sftp_passwd,..)

Do I only need to install Net::SFTP module for all this?

I am a complete newbie so please help urgently !!!

Yes, you must use cpan Net::SFTP, or a better option would probably be cpan Net::SSH2::SFTP
