This is where scripting and key exchange comes in to play. From your
home brew script, first check if the box is a live by pinging it or
perhaps making a dummy connection to the port you are trying to
connect to so you knkow that machine is alive and port is listening.
To get around the password issue you will need to exchange your SSH
keys between your server machine and a backup machine.
