how to give password for sudo while doing ssh?

I am trying to do like this

ssh my.hostname.com "sudo /etc/rc.d/apache restart"

and sudo is asking for the password which when I type is clearly visible on the terminal.. what should I do so that password would not be visible when I type my password while executing above command. Thanks!

in your ssh client program, there is an option for "local echo", do what it takes to disable local echo and you won't see what you type, only the output

You can setup sudo to run without a password for your user

username ALL= NOPASSWD: /full/path/to/command

Example

mark  ALL= NOPASSWD: /etc/rc.d/apache restart

Assuming your name is mark

Hi,

just let ssh allocate a tty, so it can successfully enter "security" mode.

ssh -tt my.hostname.com "sudo /etc/rc.d/apache restart"

From now on your password will be invisible when you type it.
