  • 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!
