I have a perl script that has an SCP command. Its a script that needs to be run on many servers. In most of the servers, the keys are setup and it won't prompt for the password. But, there are few servers where the keys are not setup. On those servers, I don't want it to wait for the password. I want it to simply ignore the SCP and move on.
How can I force it to "timeout" and not prompt for the password.
