Re: Remote Shell

You can perform 'rsh' type commands with ssh as well... here's an example:

/# ssh servername w
root@servername's password: <type password here>
 10:45pm  up 19 days,  6:31,  2 users,  load average: 0.18, 0.11, 0.09
USER     TTY      FROM              LOGIN@   IDLE   JCPU   PCPU  WHAT
root     ttyp0    client            8:08pm  2:37m  0.27s  0.10s

You can also setup authorized keys on the server side.  In your home dir
on the server, go into the '.ssh' dir, and create a file called
'authorized_keys', then on your workstation, type 'ssh-keygen'.  In your
home dir, go into '.ssh' and take the contents of '' and copy
that to the 'authorized_keys' on the server side.  Then 'chmod 600
authorized_keys' on the server side.  Then it won't ask you for a password
when you ssh to that machine.  It's usefull if you want to set this up as
a cronjob to do something on a remote machine.
