Hi there,

I need to make a Windows Batch File that will reboot a linux machine running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

admin username=whatever
password=everwhat
ip=192.168.1.5

Could you please provide me with the required command line?

Cheers,
Rene

This is not going to be all that easy.  If your using ssh you have two options that I know of.


1) Set key authentication so you do not get prompt for a password

2) Use an expect script to pass the password.

Get plink (PuTTY link) - http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

Put this in your batch file:
plink whatever@192.168.1.5 -pw everwhat < cmds.txt

cmds.txt:
/sbin/shutdown -r now
