a login script issue
I want to make a script that grab a file from a box to another periodically.
Customers prefer writing the script on dos-shell, but that's not the problem.
I could fetch the file using scp2 from windows, the problem is I need to supply the password.
The file is not owned by superuser, so I don't need to login as a root.
Is there a way to give the password automatically or maybe create a passwordless user in linux?
I was reading some of threads on login script, and I stumbled upon using sudoers.
if I make a user JOE and add this line to sudoers
JOE ALL = NOPASSWD: /data.sql <- this is the file that i need to get
do you think I can execute a script to grab that file with no password?
i tried doing this
scp2 192.168.0.1 | password
but that has no joy
any suggestions that can enlighten me?
Thank you so much
