How to write a password-entering ssh script?

Recommended Posts

I use an ssh tunnel which needs a password, where the characters entered are not displayed. I tried different methods:



sh -c "password" | ssh -L 6700: user@sshtunnel.net



ssh -L 6700: user@sshtunnel.net

sh -c "password"


I tried 'echo "password" | ssh -L 6700: user@sshtunnel.net' but this only works where password characters are displayed.


The technical support guy said that the ssh server won't allow public-key placement because of vulnerabilities of openssl.


Incidentally, it always says "#!/bin/bash: no such file". I checked: it is there.


I also tried to change the algorithms:

ssh -c aes128-ctr, aes192-ctr, aes256-ctr, aes128-cbc, cast128-cbc, arcfour128, arcfour256, arcfour, aes192-cbc, aes256-cbc, 3des-cbc

but it always says there's a problem resolving the second algorithm.
