Description : Run command-line sessions to network appliances
Use this module to establish an interactive command-line session with a network
appliance. There is special support for moving into "privileged" mode and
"configure" mode, along with the ability to send commands to the connected
device and retrieve returned output.
There are other CPAN modules that cover similar ground, but they are less robust
and do not handle native SSH, Telnet and Serial Line connections with a single
interface on both Unix and Windows platforms.
Built-in commands come from a phrasebook which supports many network device
vendors (Cisco, HP, etc) or you can install a new phrasebook. Most phases of
the connection are configurable for different device behaviours.
