1) Install the Net::Telnet Module;

2) Try the following:

   use Net::Telnet ();
    $t = new Net::Telnet (Timeout => 15,
                          Prompt => '/bash\$ $/');
    $username = "";
    $passwd = "password";
    $t->open("systemIP");
    $t->login($username, $passwd);
    @lines = $t->cmd("dir");
    print @lines;

I am sure it's something to do with the
(Prompt => '/bash\$ $/';)
Option.
The Script expects a specific prompt from the terminal server to make sure that the server has completed the output and is expecting for the command.
You will have to try different matching strings to make sure that there is a match of the prompt that script will expect.
This is custom to the terminal server.
