Lo!

Busy with my program, I run in to 2 questions.

In a certain method I want to open a ssh connection by a certain user.
I need to sudo to an ssh user to make the passwordless connection via
public-private key authorization. How can I do this in Ruby?
FYI: I am not allowed to use sudo su - ssh -c [ssh command].

Thanks,
Krekna

  1. you can start programs by command or Kernel#system, or IO#popen
  2. you probably want to call sudo -u <username> ssh -c <command>
    or even
    user = ‘joe’
    cmd = ‘ls’
    sudo -u #{user} ssh -c #{cmd}
    but then be careful what you are passing there.
