How can i run script on other server.

Hi guys ,

I want to run a specific command from one server to another.
For example I have a server called A(client) and a server called B(Server).

How would i fire a command on Server(B) while working on Client(A).

One way of doing it is using ssh
"ssh -tq ls -ltr"
but whenever i execute the command it ask for the password. How would i reduce effort of putting password again and again.
Please find the output of following command.
[root@abc .ssh]# find / -name .ssh

You should use public key authentication. There are hundreds of howtos on the web. Here's just one.

As already said, there are a lot of howto's how to setup your system to handle SSH authentication automatically. Another possibility is (if you have developer experience), to code a small server application that listens on some port on server B, waiting for your remote input, and then executes that input. Such a simple server application design i often included in textbooks on Linux development.
