Create public and private keys (with ssh-keygen -- read the man page) and install them.

Then you can use a command like:

Code:
remoteuser=myname
remotecomputer=example.com
ssh -l "$remoteuser" "$remotecomputer" "ls -l; date; "

To capture the result either redirect it to a file or store it in a variable with command substitution.

what about password ?

Hi.. I ran your script and it did work well, but I needed to type the password, how can I do it if I want the password inside the script ? so it runs automaticly without asking about password ?

On the server, the public key should be appended to $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys

on the client, the private key should go in '$HOME/.ssh', called id_XXX depending on the type of key.

The key pair should be made without password.
