I sent a mail to comp.security.ssh but no reply. I'm hoping that you guys
have a pointer towards the solution... so here goes...
My program is run by another program using sudo. I need to use netstat on a
remote machine. The command ends up looking like this
sudo ssh -l blah 126.96.36.199 sudo netstat -p
This asks me for the password of blah at 188.8.131.52.
I have configured the remote machine in such a way that I can connect to it
with an empty passphrase.
ssh -l blah 184.108.40.206 sudo netstat -p
works without asking me for any password.
Is there a way I can get the ssh to use the passphrase. Since this system
call is being invoked from within a program, I do not want to pass the
password every time.
