the first 2 characters of the first line must be #! – glenn jackman Apr 30 '12 at 2:11
What exactly is going wrong? please post any/all errors you are receiving or state exactly what is happening that differs from your expectations. – MaQleod Apr 30 '12 at 2:18
There is more or less not a single working line in that entire script. Have you pasted it incorrectly? Have you written it yourself? – Daniel Andersson Apr 30 '12 at 7:44

Change the outermost double quotes to single quotes, otherwise your current shell will interpret and replace what you are sending to the remote server. Better still write a script in remote and execute that script remotely to avoid quoting issues.
