I need to automate some scp file transfers between a PXE-booted client and
it's Server. Apparently, I cannot automatically supply the Server account's
password as an argument. Since the PXE-based machine is coming from a
generated image, I do not reaaly have access to it in order to run
ssh-keygen. I don't know a lot about SSH or private/public keys, that why I
was hoping to supply the password as a command-line argument to scp. This
is in a fairly secure environment, but we are trying to use scp instead of
something that needs another server (like ftp). Any suggestions on how to
automate scp file-transfers?
