Run sql remotely via vb script

I am trying to connect to putty, login into a remote linux server and execute a sql command file.
I can open the connection fine, but no keys are sent when I'm not logged in (works fine if I am logged in)
However, send keys is not working when I am not logged in. I was trying to do this through vbscript:

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run """C:\Program Files (x86)\PuTTY\putty.exe"" user@server -pw password", 9
WshShell.AppActivate("Window Title")
WScript.Sleep 20000
WshShell.SendKeys "dbaccess db@dbserver commandfilepath"
WScript.Sleep 20000
WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}"
WScript.Sleep 20000
WshShell.SendKeys "exit"
WshShell.SendKeys ("{Enter}")

Why wouldn't you just run a remote bash script at the same time as you use ssh to connect to that NIX box?

ssh yourusername@server1 './yourscript.sh'

I think the script would need to be in that user's profile and you may have to play around with the syntax, but this seems a lot simpler.

Is dbaccess a local program that you are trying to use to connect to the remote dbserver?  If so what server? What exactly are you trying to accomplish?  Doing sendkeys seems like an around the world type way to do something like this.
