Pass password with ssh command
 
Hey Y'all,

I'm trying to put together a script to remotely connect to clients via ssh and execute a script, such as mount then rpm -U. My first obstacle is how to pass a password with the username in the ssh command. I have not seen this in the documentation and am doubtful that this is even possible.
Anyone had any luck with this type of thing?

thanks in advance.

read "man ssh" carefully
entering a password is not the only way for authentication

This is what you are looking for. I am using this to connect via cron and us rsync to remotely back up files. If you need help I can help you.
