Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have been trying to get to grips with Linux and feel I have a bit of an unusual request for help
I need to be able to SSH from my Centos 6.7 box to other devices but without passing the username in the SSH request. So for example, if I am logged in as "user1" and I SSH to another device, the username "user1" is sent as part of the request. I need to stop this from happening if possible.
I have tried to search for help on this but nearly all results come back for people asking how to change the username that you SSH as, but I need to not send a username in the request at all. I need to rely on the end device to ask me for a username.
This is for an automated application that logs into devices but it expects to be prompted for a username, but when Centos sends the username in the request the device will not prompt for it and this confuses my automated script. I can go into more detail how this works if anybody needs to know.
I had the exact same set up running on Ubuntu server and I never had this problem, so I am hoping it is a feature that can be turned on or off.
Don't think its possible. At least the man ssh did not render any meaning full results. Maybe if you use ssh/config file, put in a user part but don't give it any value. Maybe you get an error from ssh or it uses the active user or asks.
