I know, this is not the recommended way to do this. But, I do not have another choice:
I've got to set up a cron job that will regularly upload a file to an external SFTP Server (no FTP available, and I do only have a username/password for it but no key.)
Still, I need to set up a cron that will regularly connect to that sftp and upload a file.
sftp <<EOF put filename exit EOF
therefore will not work, because sftp asks for the password, before STDIN is evaluated.
What can I do, to pass the Password to sftp?
Again: I am aware of the potential security risk, but I really do not have any choice here, and the server from which the file is uploaded is protected rather well.
