Transferring a file from one UNIX server to another

Hi,

Is there a way to transfer a file from one unix server from another without entering the login credentials. I know scp and other commands but it prompts the username/password.
However in my script i have a file, who i need to send to another unix server where the content of that file will be processed.
Also i was thinking if we write a script on the destination server which can accept the file i will send from the source server. But i am not sure how to pass and accept the particular file.
Can someone help?

Google "ssh passwordless login"

If it does not need to be secure then try a simple FTP script.
Code:
ftp -in 00.00.0.0 <<E-O-F
user login password
type ascii
put file.txt
quit
E-O-F

# 4  
ftp -in 00.00.0.0 <<E-O-F
user login password
type ascii
put file.txt
quit
E-O-F

will the above command need user name password?
the whole idea is the i want to avoid entering my secure id password and as well there is not a fix password

I believe you are using RSA secure ID for logging into your server, in that case configuring ssh-keys in the best option. There are several sites which provide step-by-step instructions on how to do it, please have a look. If you have any issues with setup, then get back to us. We will assist you.
