I have a build job which runs on Hudson and synchronizes content from an Amazon AWS server. This is written in shell

I have a PPK file given to me which can establish the connectivity

Here is the problem. The build script I use doesn't establish the connectivity in the code. So, I manually connect the host thro the PPK file using Putty and then run the job, then it works fine

I am new to the shell stuff. Could someone help me out by suggesting how I can establish connectivity using the PPK file in the shell so I do not have to do it manually thro Putty?

Can you post the portions of the shell script which connect via SSH? – Will Jul 20 '15 at 1:34
