OK, I have done some searching and could not come up with an answer for this.
First off, I am trying to make a script that will scp a file to a remote server every day. I need to pass my password off to the scp command but cant get it to work.
BTW, I do not have access to make auth keys on the server so that is not an option.
I have tried
echo 'password' | scp file2 firstname.lastname@example.org
it doesnt work
I have also tried using the sleep command in my script, dont work... Any help would be appreciated.
