executing commands in remote server using ssh

I have some commands which need to be executed in remote machine.

I have Linux Server from where I need to connect to Solaris server using ssh and then declare some variable over there and run some commands. I don't want to call a script which is present in Solaris server from Linux server rather I want to execute commands in remote machine. Please help asap.

As you have mentioned about declaring variables and executing commands, this will help

ssh user@hostname "a=\"ls -l\"; $a"

what do you mean "written many commands"

if you are having list of commands to be executed, then use a script, other wise using this ssh could be hectic.

If you want so, then as i have posted, execute your commands one by one by seperating them with semicolon.
