hi ,
is there any way to write a PHP program for SSH.
I want to establish a SSH connection and work some commands in the remote system and close the connection.

Yes, just do this (uses an SSH key file):

   echo "Executing remote command...<br />";
   echo `ssh -i /path/to/key/file [EMAIL PROTECTED] ls /tmp`;
   echo "Done executing remote command.<br />";

Use an SSH key file so you won't have to provide a password. I do this all the time for system administration, works great for inter-host communication.

If you're going to go this route, I would suggest that you read up on the security issues inherent in using a non-passworded key file - and make sure that the privileges on the remote host are set accordingly.
