expect script vs authorized keys login

Posted 10-09-2009 at 08:28 AM by mathew_p_a

Most of the time, a linux script writer must have encountered reasons to automate the scripts that require login to the server, copying of data without the need of giving a password at the shell prompt. Most of the time, people will settle down with setting up the secure key access. ie, using authorized keys. But there is also another way of automating login to the servers. It is by using the expect script.

If expect is installed on your machine you can see it at /usr/bin/expect....

Being human

I am a man.
I will die one day.
My place in this universe is insignificant and infinitesimally minute.
My time here is less than a moment.
This universe will come to pass and all of its memories
are but shadows of the dreams of dust.
While I am here,
I shall enjoy myself
not at the expense of others
but as to make my life worth something.

So I discovered a cool little trick with konsole. Using dcop, you can open new terminals as a new session (tab) in an existing konsole window and then send commands to said sessions (and even rename the sessions to match what commands you sent to it).

But, there's only one problem. I'm running...
