Batch file to login to putty

I've created a .bat file with this line:
start C:\USERS\Putty\putty.exe -ssh -pw password

That opens a putty session and logged in it with the user and password i've already specified. But now, I want to enter a simple command like "ls -l" for example.. How can I do that?

I've also tried plink...The line in that case is this one:
start C:\USERS\Putty\plink.exe -v -ssh -pw password -m UNIX_commands.txt

and in that file "UNIX_commands.txt" I've added the following lines:

cd /projects/test
ls -l

all works fine (the commands are executed) but i can't see the putty session... all i can see is the verbose in my DOS windows of the last line "ls -l"...

The putty session vanishes away. How can I have the session opened and list the mentioned directory.

Please help

This isn't a networking question and is a windows question. Moving to Genetal were it may get more responses.

A hack i used recently in similar occasion :

Add a new user specifically for running this script

Login to the system thru ftp

Upload a ~/.bashrc which includes the wanted commands, it executes once and then replaces itself with the normal bashrc

Log out of ftp

Log in to ssh and quit - the script had executed
