Execute command via SSH on remote box and output to local

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I cannot believe how simple this is, yet I had to google to figure it out (why oh why didn’t I just read the ‘man’ pages). The syntax for executing a remote command is as simple as:

## SYNTAX
ssh [user]@[remote host] [command]
 
## EXAMPLE
ssh techedemic@192.168.1.200 df -h
 
techedemic@192.168.1.200's password: 
Filesystem                             Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/td--VG1-td--LV2            443G   89G  332G  22% /
udev                                   993M  4.0K  993M   1% /dev
tmpfs                                  401M  628K  401M   1% /run
none                                   5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
none                                  1002M     0 1002M   0% /run/shm
/dev/sda1                              241M   38M  191M  17% /boot

  1. Hi my name is Jacqueline and I just wanted to drop you a quick note here instead of calling you. I discovered your Execute command via SSH on remote box and output to local | Techedemic page and noticed you could have a lot more visitors. I have found that the key to running a successful website is making sure the visitors you are getting are interested in your subject matter. There is a company that you can get targeted traffic from and they let you try their service for free for 7 days. I managed to get over 300 targeted visitors to day to my website.
