While we're being civil :) I have a question.
When my main VPN hub goes down here, for whatever
reason, I have to manually go into each branch
firewall, via ssh, and restart their VPN connection.
What I'd like is to write a init script to do it
for me, so I don't have to get up at 2AM when they
restore power...It appears ssh-agent might do the
trick, but it appears it's primary purpose is to
"cache" my password so I don't have to re-enter it
again during my session. If I log out, I have to
re-enter it. Is this correct? And, the fact that
each of the branch firewall has a different
password, that would affect it, too, right? If
so, is it possible, without hard-coding the router
passwords in a script in plain text to have a
script ssh in and run some commands on a remote
machine without any human intervention?
