Hi group,

machine A has a connection to macine B.

It is possible to run some command on machine B as you are on machine A such as:

# ssh  10.0.27.254  ls
# ssh  10.0.27.254  mkdir aDir

but when I do

# ssh 10.0.27.254  echo $HOSTNAME  it doesn't print the name of the remote machine (B)

How can I get that information?

Thanks,
