to run one command on remote server
ssh user@hostname 'cmd'
to run multiple commands on remote server
ssh user@hostname 'cmd1;cmd2;....;cmdn'
in your case it would go like this
ssh user@hostname 'ls -l <filename>'
ssh user@hostname 'more <filename>'
ssh user@hostname 'tail -100 <filename>'
ssh user@hostname 'ls -l <filename>;more <filename>;tail -100 <filename>'

thank you.
