I am interested in connecting by shell (Putty or another tool) (I have cygwin and OpenSSH )
This is what I wish to accomplish:
Here is what I have:
Is there any way to accomplish this?
WinSCP supports command-line use. WinSCP scripting allows you to automate a connection to a remote server, as well as uploading files to the remote server via SCP. You can run a script on the remote server with WinSCP using the CALL command, then download the results, also using WinSCP. Here's a link to the WinSCP scripting and automation page: http://winscp.net/eng/docs/scripting.
I want to be able to send a text file through an SMTP server of my ISP (port 25) to an email address on the internet, like my Office email address, or my GMail address. I have a basic Ubuntu 9.04 server setup on my DSL connection.
How can I use, say, Postfix, to send the .LOG file, on a bash script ? What would be the packages to install on that server, given it was never used to send email in the past ?
SendEmail seems like a nice tool for that. From what I get from the documentation it would be just a call like this:
sendEmail -f <myadress> -t <destination> -u <subject> -m <message> -a <pathtofile> -s <serveradress> -xu <username> -xp <password>
Another option is the ssmtp package. Since it's a sendmail emulator, it is highly compatible with all kinds of stuff that might want to send email.
