Re: SSH Connection



Your best bet would probably be to use key-based auth...

http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/keychain/index.xml (Available for most
RH variants from the DAG repositories
http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/apt/ )

Read through those articles to get a decent understanding of how it
works then generate a key-pair on box A, preferably including a
passworded private key!

Then copy the public key into $HOME/ias/.ssh/authorized_keys on box B.
Make sure authorized_keys has 600/rw------- permissions.

Finally use keychain to cache local authentication information on box
A, preferably using the --clear option when you source it from
bash_profile or wherever. You probably want to source

$HOME/.keychain/$HOSTNAME-sh

from within your script too.

Will.
