I can shut down a remote machine by connecting via ssh then shutting it down
sudo shutdown -h now
password: (entered pwd not visible)
and the remote machine shuts down.
To save typing (and brain power) I wrote a script on local machine
ssh ip_addr sudo shutdown -h now
When I run the script it works as expected and shuts down the remote
machine, but when it prompts me for the password (for the sudo
shutdown), the password I type is not hidden but is visible on screen,
which is not good. I am sure there is a way round this but I have not
managed to find it. Any help will be much appreciated.
