Run remote EOF command

I have the command

cat - << _EOF | ed /home/fred/test >/dev/null 2>&1
2 s#u_pwd=[^:]*:#u_pwd=${Password}:#
3,$ s/u_succhg#[^:]*:/u_succhg#${Date}:/
w
q
_EOF


I works great on the local system but I need to ssh to a remote system and run this command without having a script on the remote system. I tried just putting it in quotes (ssh $system " (the command) " ) but it does not work. I am unsure of how to accomplish this. Any help would be appreciated.

Don't put quotes around your command.

Code:
$ ssh localhost cat << EOF
...stuff goes here...
EOF

It worked for me.
