Try to set up ssh in such a way as to list the contents of a directory, e.g. the directory which contains the image. Then a simple % ssh [EMAIL PROTECTED] ls somedir would tell you all you need to know. Please refer to ssh documentation, on how to avoid having to use a pass phrase everytime you want to access a remote host. -- Cordula's Web. http://www.cordula.ws/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
