If you do it with C-Kermit, it doesn't matter:
C-Kermit is scriptable communications software that runs on all
varieties of UNIX as well as on other OS families like VMS; it can make
serial connections (direct or dialed), TCP/IP connections (Telnet,
Rlogin, etc), and in some cases also X.25 or other networking methods,
and its script language will log you in automatically. Look here:
for some examples.
Also note that the current version of C-Kermit (7.0) can execute
scripts just like the shell -- you just "run" the script and give it
arguments on the command line, just as you would a shell script.
And finally note that C-Kermit 7.0 supports a variety of security
methods (which, stupidly, are not exportable beyond the USA and Canada)
that obviate the sending of passwords over the connection in clear
text, or at all.
1. Help:ftp automatic login...
does someone know how to send files selected i.e. by command find via
ftp using automatic login information $HOME/.netrc? (as parameter list
for command mput)
If pipe is on and the first character of the file name is the vertical
bar (|) the remainder of the argument is interpreted as shell command.
ftp then forks a shell.
But it does not work.
I'm using the DigitalUnix 4.0D.
