I am writing a shell script that needs to execute commands on a remote
system using "rexec". I want to do this without typing in a password every
time the "rexec" command executes. The way I see it the "rexec" command in
CYGWIN does not allow a password to be passed. I have tried to use a
".netrc" file (to supply the password) with the format:
machine remote_machine_name login remote_username password string
I have not been able to get this to work. I cannot find a man page or other
CYGWIN documentation for "rexec" or ".netrc".
Is it possible to do this with CYGWIN?
Umm, why not use "ssh"?
