Hi Gordon,

to answer your question...

Open the Terminal.app (make sure you have a window open). Go to the SHELL menu and choose SAVE AS... Name this document what you like.

Open this document in a text editor (not vi, pico, etc, use a mac editor, like Pepper or BBEdit) and look for this line of text:

<key>ExecutionString</key>
<string>ssh login@servername.com
</string>

Note: put a return character after your SSH command. Upon the file being double-clicked, the Terminal will open with a new window and initiate that command. Then all you must do is enter your password.
