SecureCRT Command Line Options - Non-interactive command on the server

After a non-interactive SSH log in to a remote server without any interactive prompting, can I execute a script on the remote server?

Using Plink (Putty), I can execute a remote script. For example, to execute a script backup.sh on a remote server(myhost.local), I can issue a command:

plink ubuntutest@myhost.local -i PuttyPrivate.ppk ./backup.sh

I am wondering if this is possible using SecureCRT SSH.

Hi akd,

SecureCRT can absolutely run commands on the remote system. Because Plink is a command line only utility and SecureCRT is a GUI application there will some variance in how this is done.

One option would be to use SecureCRT's Remote command functionality.
  1. Create and save a session to the remote server
  2. Right click on the saved session and choose Properties
  3. Select the Logon Actions category
  4. Enable the Remote command option
  5. Enter the command you would like to run on the remote system
  6. Save your changes

When connecting to this session, SecureCRT will automatically run the remote command. After the remote command completes SecureCRT will automatically disconnect the session. Based on your needs, there are additional configuration options available to automatically close the tab/application upon disconnect as well.

Does this help get you the behavior you're looking for?
