Connect to target host from Source host.

Hi All,

Need to connect to target host and execute a command and connect back to source host to continue with next set of command execution.

Is there a utility/command using which we can connect to target host ?

Please suggest.

Note: Netezza database is instaled on Linux server.

Thanks and Regards

Did you consider ssh?

You can use SSH to do this
sshusername@ipaddress ‘command’
 ssh username@domainname ‘command’
 ssh username@domainname ‘command1 | command2′


ssh tts@ ‘df -Th’
ssh tts@ ‘ls -l /etc/httpd’
ssh tts@ ‘grep -i tts /etc/passwd’

Add the single line command in the script to execute a command in the remote machine.
