Question Passing the variable value to remote server.

Dear All,

Can anybody explain me how to pass the variable value to command argument which will execute in remote machine.

example..

test="test-123.dbf"

how can i pass this value to command ls -l for remote machine?

I tried to do like this way

ssh root@remote 'ls -l /home/test/${test}'

It is not taking the variable value it is giving the output of ls -l of the folder mentioned which contains the other files too.

pl help me how can i achieve this.

thanks in advance..

Madhu
