Hello, I have a question and hope this is the correct area for it. If not
please feel free to direct me elsewhere. 

Q:
I'm looking to implement an SSH based script/utility to connect to 8
different boxen, execute various commands and retrieve a file. The Perl
and Ant SSH implementation just don't seem to have what I need. I've
checked into this Ruby implementation and like it the best. I'm having a
problem tho, here's the code, based off Jamis' examples. Also the problem
seem to be when I call my method , @server isn't being recognized by my
Net:SSH call (getting socket error):

Code:

require 'net/ssh'


def do_sshget (sshserver)


  @sshserver = sshserver

  Net::SSH.start( 
  "@sshserver", 'user', 'passw',
    :keys=>["C:\SSH\HostKeys"] 
  ) do |session|
    shell = session.shell.open
    shell.send_data "/home/user/bin/copy_log\n"
    shell.exit
    sleep 10.0
    $stdout.print shell.stdout while shell.stdout?
    $stderr.puts "-- stderr: --"
    $stderr.print shell.stderr while shell.stderr?
  
    end

  # Copy the logs locally, can't find SCP in Ruby,    shelling out to
Putty's pscp.exe
  f=IO.popen("pscp -pw pass
user@"@sshserver":/home/user/log_archive/@sshserver.jar @sshserver.jar")
  p f.readlines
  

end

#Need to repeat this 7 more times 'somehow' with different server name
do_sshget("server123456")
