What I'd like to do is somehow change the above so that the script prompts me for a password and when I give the script the password it will use it to auto-reply to any password promtps that scp asks for when logging into all the servers. If I am right I believe readline needs to be used. If it can't be done in bash can you give me a perl alternative please. Thanks for your help. DanHi Dan,You might want to use autoexpect for that. This can get you in security problems since you'd need to write your password in the script, but as long as you use user and groups perms correctly you should kinda safe. Manuel.
Hi,I think Dan should first read the "expect" man page where he can learn how to provide an expect script with passwords or keys (independent from all security aspects you mentioned above).
