Perl SSH client package implemented on top of OpenSSH


Net::OpenSSH is a secure shell client package implemented on top of the OpenSSH binary client (ssh), leveraging the multiplexing feature found in current versions of OpenSSH. That is, when a new Net::OpenSSH object is created, ssh is run in master mode establishing a permanent connection. Then, every time a new operation is requested, a new ssh process is started in slave mode, reusing the master SSH connection to send the request to the remote side. This makes Net::OpenSSH very fast, as most of the latency of ssh is intrinsic to the protocol.

If you like the API of other Perl SSH distributions like Net::SSH, Net::SSH2 or Net::SSH::Perl, and would like to use them with Net::OpenSSH, have a look at the libnet-openssh-compat-perl package.
