One Question related to alias

Hello,
I have created following alias in csh

lab 'rlogin -l user23 complab23'

but problem is complab23 does not allow automatic login by checking .rhosts file. So after typing lab on command line I have to type complicate password and if wrong password is typed thrice then account gets locked.

Could someone suggest me another solution ?
Is there any way to create shell script which will login to this complab23 server usign user23 account and then return control to my terminal,. something llike below

rlogin -l user23 complab23 << EOF
passw0rd!!!
EOF
command which will make shell interactive and return control to terminal.

Ok - caveat - storing passwords in a file in plaintext is a bad idea....but if you want to do this you can use expect.

The following code should work:

Code:
#!/usr/bin/expect
spawn rsh -l user23 complab23
match_max 100000 
expect "assword: "
send "<insert your password here>\r"
interact 
exit

Use ~/.rhosts

You could try creating an .rhosts file under your home directory of the target machine with name of the machine from which you attempt to make the connection.

Code:
cat /home/user/.rhosts
HostFromWhichDoRlogin YourUsername

Pls see man rhosts from more info

Thanks

MySQL

Like you got this above:
SSH with Authentication keys Smilie
This is how you should do it. And remember - if you keep your password in plain textSmilie then it is almost like you are creating a public account where anyone can log-in.
