Post date: January 25, 2006, 20:01 Category: Network Views: 2929 Comments
Tutorial quote: As a system administrator, I have used OpenSSH's piping abilities more times than I can remember.

In combination with bash's subshell invocation, OpenSSH can distribute the heavy work, reduce trace interference on a system under test, and make other "impossible" tasks possible. I've even used it to make Microsoft Windows remote administration easier.

In the examples below, I have tried to avoid GNU-specific idioms for tools which have non-GNU counterparts. This practice improves portability of shell scripts in heterogeneous environments.
