Thanks, the debug helped. It was missing Term/ReadKey. Now on to the 
next problem

dev: Reading configuration data /var/www/.ssh/config
dev: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh_config
dev: Connecting to 67.126.xxx.xxx, port 22.
dev: Remote protocol version 1.99, remote software version OpenSSH_3.7p1
dev: Net::SSH::Perl Version 1.25, protocol version 1.5.
dev: No compat match: OpenSSH_3.7p1.
dev: Connection established.
dev: Waiting for server public key.
dev: Received server public key (768 bits) and host key (1024 bits).
dev: Host '67.126.xxx.xxx' is known and matches the host key.
dev: Encryption type: DES3
dev: Sent encrypted session key.
dev: Received encryption confirmation.
dev: RSA authentication failed: Can't load public key.
dev: Doing challenge response authentication.

(prompts for password...which it shouldn't do)

To test that the key works, I just tried to ssh to the machine. No 
password requested.

$ ssh statususer at 67.126.xxx.xxx
[statususer at primaryfax statususer]$

So, I am now trying to figure out why perl can't load the public key but 
regular ssh can.

Any thoughts?

runs back to the documentation,
