in reply to Moving around with password protected machines.

I'd recommend setting up ssh on the machines if it isn't already. It has a couple methods for letting you skip the password prompt. Then, you can just run something like
system("ssh machine command");
Plus, you get the added bonus of not having to have your password sent unencrypted over the line, as it is with telnet. The same can be done with rsh, but it's not recommended, as rsh is known to not be very secure.

    ssh is also great in that you can avoid sending your passwords around in clear text across the network. You might not care about that, but if your network is at all exposed then you should.

    I can use rsh and ssh to move around the network. The program has a habit of bombing once I do so. I have a feeling that this is because I have left the machine with the code, but this is just a rookie's idea of what is going on.
