Sorry, but what exactly is subpass?  I'm not getting any hits in the software arena when googling that.

Can you please be a bit more specific about what you're looking to download/install?

If you're looking for sshpass as suggested by woolmilkporc, then it's in the standard RHEL6 repositories.

Just do:

yum install sshpass

Soory for my confusion on subpass vs sshpass.  I was looking for sshpass

I would prefer to use a yum install as you suggested on RHEL, however I get the following:

[root@xxclnt1 home]# cat /etc/issue
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.5 (Santiago)
Kernel \r on an \m

[root@xxclnt1 home]# sshpass
-bash: sshpass: command not found
[root@xxclnt1 home]#
[root@xxclnt1 home]# yum install sshpass
Loaded plugins: product-id, rhnplugin, security, subscription-manager
This system is not registered to Red Hat Subscription Management. You can use subscription-manager to register.
This system is receiving updates from RHN Classic or RHN Satellite.
Setting up Install Process
No package sshpass available.
Error: Nothing to do
[root@xxclnt1 home]#

Open in new window


So on this version of RHEL, it does not come with the base package, and can not be updated through the yum install sshpass command

Did I do something wrong ?

Thanks

No, you didn't do anything wrong, I guess it's in the Centos 6.4 repository, but not the RHEL one.

You can still do it via RPM which will check dependencies just like yum does:

rpm -Uvh ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/dag.wieers.com/redhat/el6/en/x86_64/dag/RPMS/sshpass-1.05-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
