scp, don't prompt password!!
scp somefile.ext firstname.lastname@example.org:/path/to/where/I/want/it
This obviously asks for my password. I do not want it to ask for my password, I want to put the password on the command line. So I tried:
echo "secret" | scp somefile.ext email@example.com:/path/to/where/I/want/it
That does not work.
How do I pass the command my password so I can put it in a script ?
I would suggest setting up public key authentication:
If you use lines like that in a script they will often be visible to any other user that lists the proccesses which are running. If you need to have the password in a script then use an expect script.
