Sshpass is a tool for non-interactivly performing password authentication with SSH's so called "interactive keyboard password authentication". Most user should use SSH's more secure public key authentiaction instead.

Thanks! it worked on my stand alone micro controller with no monitor and keyboard... it is able to send files to our primitive SFTP server without key files.
not supplying password with pem file (ssh -i) sshpass -p Password ssh -i key-file.pem user@host
Works great. Our corporate server does not allow us to use keypair for SSH, this is a life-saver. Thanks!
Works well on a lot of OS's except on SunOS: $ uname -a SunOS srv7 5.8 Generic_117350-25 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V210 I got this error with the missing symbol "pselect". So I gave it a try to replace it with "select" which is on my system. It works a little, but hangs on exit so I have to Ctrl-C to get out. To my knowledge pselect should be on the system but it is not. $ diff main.c.OLD main.c 318c318 < int selret=pselect( masterpt+1, &readfd, NULL, NULL, NULL, &sigmask_select ); --- > int selret=select( masterpt+1, &readfd, NULL, NULL, NULL);
SF says I have to say something, so this is it: Works great!
