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.
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);
