From a previous thread I found I could do the following to run a command remotely

putty -t user@host -pw password -m local_commands_file

Open in new window


How can I do this with ssh instead of putty >

Thanks

You shouldn't enter a password on a command line or store it in a file.  You should use ssh keys and preload your passphrase with ssh agent, if you don't want it to prompt you for a password..

Load your key
eval ssh-agent
ssh-add YOUR_SSH_KEY

Then you can ssh to systems that have your key in the authorized_keys file without using a password.
ssh user@host  "COMMAND1; COMMAND2; COMMAND3; ETC..."

In putty, you would run pageant.exe and load your key and you'd run your command without the -pw option.

You can install the cygwin environment and openssh which will give you the ssh command in windows.

Then you can just run from a cmd window:

ssh user@host /path/to/your_commands.sh

(it will prompt you only the first time to save the server's key, but every time for your password)
