How can I automatize this task?
1) You are at A. 2) You ssh into B. 3) You run a script at B, that needs a parameter known at A.
First, I thought perhaps I could send the value when I opened the connection with ssh. Then, probably simpler, between 1) and 2), scp the entire script to the same location at B (replacing the old one). But still, how do I execute the script at B? (That is, how to automatize that last step. Of course, I could run it manually after ssh.)
Another thought, maybe discard of ssh altogether - I have a web page at B, so could the script somehow be invoked through an "under the hood" web interface?
Or would you do it in an altogether different way?
