shell script for connecting to a different user

Hi Gurus,
I want to connect to a different user in unix from my terminal. I know the password
of that user and username.when i am using "su username" it asks me for the password and entering the corresponding password ,it takes me to that.but i want to write a shell script in which i will be using the password of that user so it will never ask for the password and will connect me to that particular user.is it possible gurus,Please excuse me if i am wrong.
Regards,
sanjaySmilie

2 options (maybe - I havent tested yet...)
One that works: Use sudo
One that needs confirmation : use ssh

If that is for executing commands as different user, then check / search for 's' bit, that should do what you are looking for.
