Uploading a file and copying over the file onto a remote server

P: 5
Hi All,

I am currently trying to code HTML and perl to upload a file (using input type="file") from a local PC and onto a remote UNIX server. The web application is located on the remote UNIX server.

I understand that I would have to SFTP the file to the remote UNIX server and that I could either script Perl using

  1. Net::SFTP::Foreign

  1. system (scp username@ipaddress...);
Unfortunately, I'm programming the scripts to avoid using many Perl libraries.

My question if I want to scp the file on the remote unix server, how I code the script to pick up the ip address of the client PC so that I can scp the file to remote unix server?

You can use perl-function gethostbyname(DOMAINNAME)
It returns the packed IP-address, so you can unpack it with the unpack('C4') function.
