       Net::CLI::Interact::Transport::SSH - SSH based CLI connection


       This module provides a wrapped instance of an SSH client for use by Net::CLI::Interact.


       On Windows platforms you must download the "plink.exe" program, and pass its location to
       the library in this parameter. On other platforms, this defaults to "ssh" (openssh).

       Based on the "connect_options" hash provided to Net::CLI::Interact on construction,
       selects and formats parameters to provide to "app" on the command line. Supported

       host (required)
           Host name or IP address of the host to which the SSH application is to connect.
           Alternatively you can pass a value of the form "user@host", but it's probably better
           to use the separate "username" parameter instead.

           Optionally pass in the username for the SSH connection, otherwise the SSH client
           defaults to the current user's username. When using this option, you should obviously
           only pass the host name to "host".

           Under normal interactive use "openssh" tracks the identity of connected hosts and
           verifies these identities upon each connection. In automation this behaviour can be
           irritating because it is interactive.

           This option, enabled by default, causes "openssh" to skip or ignore this host identity
           verification. This means the default setting is less secure, but also less likely to
           trip you up. It is equivalent to the following:


           Pass a false value to this option to disable the above and return "openssh" to its
           default configured settings.

           If you want to pass any other options to openssh on its command line, then use this
           option, which should be an array reference. Each item in the list will be passed to
           "openssh", separated by a single space character. For example:

                # ...other parameters to new()...
                connect_options => {
                    opts => [
                        '-p', '222',            # connect to non-standard port on remote host
                        '-o', 'CheckHostIP=no', # don't check host IP in known_hosts file

           Only used on Unix platforms, this installs a signal handler which attempts to reap the
           "ssh" child process. Pass a true value to enable this feature only if you notice
           zombie processes are being left behind after use.
