Putty and Plink command line options


Putty can be used as remote ssh client tool.

However today I learn few tricks on it.

It can be used as command line tool to execute script on remote server.

command prompt > putty.exe -t -ssh -l user -pw passwd -m C:\Users\irfan\Documents\run.txt host 

*Replace user, passwd and host with actuals.

Carate run.txt file in your documents directory and enter few commands in it.

In this case I have C:\Users\irfan\Documents\run.txt with date and  ls commands.

Above command will open putty application, logged into host based on credentials to execute commands from run.txt file.
But it will not return anything back to command prompt.

So what should be I doing to return the output back to command prompt

command prompt > plink.exe -l user -pw passwd -m C:\Users\irfan\Documents\run.txt host 

*Replace user, passwd and host with actuals.

This command will return the output to your command prompt.
