remsh is the answer

remsh <machine> -l <acc> -n "<whatever you wanna do on remote side>"

or you could ssh like this:
$ ssh machinename command

$ ssh sunhost "uname -n"

If you want to run this without providing a password you will need to generate keys on the clients and install them into the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file at the remote machine end, see: How to set up ssh so you aren't asked for a password

I used ssh hostname "command " and it does work for me if its a single command. But then there is a bunch of commands. let say I need to go to a specific folder in the remote host and then have to run some commands and so on ...... so how can I do that

any of them can work. you just have to seperate your commands by semicolon & include all of them in quotes. somethin like this

remsh <machine> -l <account> -n "cd users; ls -l"

i hope u get it.

bellow is a sample for you
ssh -n -l username ipadd ". ~/.profile >/dev/null 2>/dev/null; your commands in dest server"

say for example
ssh -n -l amit ". ~/.profile >/dev/null 2>/dev/null; cd log ;ls | wc -l"
