    I knew I should have mentioned something about that :) Yes, I could use SSH, but then I'm back to the whole interactive thing. I could have my script basically do an expect with ssh and login (but that kind of defeats the whole security thing), or I could have shared keys that allow them to not enter a password (I saw a good, short discussion on this topic here as I was looking for ideas). I guess I'd like for the end user to click a button and have it dial.

    And yes, rsh is BAD and ssh is definately GOOD.

      Newer versions of SSH can use public keys, elimating the shell interaction. Consult you SSH manpage.
