command execution upon ssh
question that should be easy, but that i can't turn up with a little
i want to ssh to a remote machine (firewall), and then immediately
upon success, ssh to another remote machine. i don't want to put this
in my .login, because i don't want it to always happen -- i want to be
able to *just* ssh to the first box, too, or have the option of going
through to the 2nd.
it seems this should have to do with the '-n' option for ssh. but
trying `ssh -n machine1 ssh machine2` gave me the error:
Pseudo-terminal will not be allocated because stdin is not a terminal.
so a little googling turned up the -t flag, and `ssh -t -n machine1
ssh machine2` seems to do the job.
however (here's the problem), i can't type in the resultant terminals.
how can i fix this? it would be great to have this capability ...
