Create self-contained SSH key scripts
Authored by: n8gray on Sep 12, '07 11:47:17AM

It's a nice trick, but I don't get it. What good does it do to have a script that you double-click on to ssh to another machine? The ssh session will end as soon as the script does -- i.e. in a fraction of a second. And why ssh to another machine if you don't want to use the command line?

Is this meant to be used in a script that actually *does* something on the other machine? If the point is just to access files on the other machine, take a look at MacFUSE and SSHFS. They make more sense for that task.
