require interactive ssh?

You mean setting up "login-less" public key authentication is not an  
option? A google search on "openssh public key authentication" will  
turn up documentation like the following:

FYI: Net::SSH won't help with interactive logins. Using pre- 
configured RSA or DSA keys is a prerequisite. It's in the Net::SSH  
docs in the FAQ:

regular unix login?

If by that you mean execute something locally using different
