Are you able/permitted  to set up ssh keys?  That would be the easiest option.

On host1, type in

ssh-keygen -t dsa

Press enter for the all the prompts.

copy the $HOME/.ssh/id_dsa.pub to host2 and put it in

$HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys

make sure .ssh directory has perms of 700 and authorized_keys has perms of 600
