in reply to Multilevel SSH

      I dont have direct access to ServerB or ServerC only from ServerA I can move on to ServerB and then on to ServerC. I have access to ServerA. How can I achieve it.

What is the end game here? What are your trying to accomplish on ServerC?

    On ServerC I have few scripts that has to be executed and I collect the output of the script to parse and get some results. Now I do this manually, login to servers one by one to get the things done

      My approach on ServerC would be to run that set of scripts out of cron (or whatever the local equivalent is) and modify the script to send the output to me one way or another.

      The "send it to me" methods could be a network share (NFS,CFS,AFS,whatever), an FTP (preferably SFTP) or as a last resort email. If you had an aggregator script on ServerB you could have ServerB pick up the output from a spool directory on ServerC and put it in a local directory. Then ServerA could pick that output up and pull it to its local directory where you could pick it up. Sorta a Rube Goldberg arrangement but I've seen worse.

      I make computers work for me... I don't work for them. :-)

        This approach might not work better for me as the script has to be executed whenever the user needs, I need to provide an interface to the script
