SSH connect script

Hawaii to Everyone!

I would like to make a script, that would go and connect to a remote computer over ssh, and would display the following things for me:
cat /etc/
uname -i

then exit

I also would like to run this script 30 times checking a different ip every time like from

Any recommendation to do this?

Thanks for the help

Easy. one liner.
i=100; while [[ $i -lt 131 ]]; do ssh -f 192.168.0.$i 'cat /etc/; uname -i; who' ; i=$(( i + 1 )); done
Hope you have pubkey auth to all these machines, man, or you'll be getting awfully tired of punching in your password.
