I know, but...
   I want to setup an automated procedure on my openVMS machine to perform
tasks on the FC4 machine. rsh on VMS allows me to give username/password on
the command line. ssh does not allow me to do that and when I try to read
the password from anythink else than the keyboard it crashes. (I do not like
to sit 24 hours a day at my computer).
  I will try to do this only for machines on the the same local network
(actually on the same switch panel) so that the big advantage off the
encryption of ssh versus rsh is not a big issue.
