i need a script to save a big time!

it should take a list of ips/hosts for example iplist.txt and a list of usernames.txt passes.txt and do ssh one by one, when logged in do ifconfig eth0 take the ip and put it in iptables rules and run it, then exit to the other host...

Well I'm not very good at iptables, I'm guessing you know how so I'll leave that for you.

If i understand you correctly you have a list of usernames and password that should somehow be related to the host address?
In that case you can build a list looking like this:
# cat iplist.txt

# This is just to split strings, it's pretty dumb and just splits by 1 character and no real regexp splitting.
function split {
   ((len += 1))
   for ((b=0;$b < $len; b++)); do
      ((pos = b + 1));
      key=$(echo $2|cut -d$delim -f$pos)
# Temporary file.
[ -z $delimiter ] && delimiter=":"
# Run throu the list specified above
for i in $(cat $list); do
   # Everything splitted ends up in an array named $split
   split "$delimiter" $i
   # Use expect to send password :)
   echo "
       spawn ssh \$argv ifconfig eth0
       expect \"[email protected]$host's password:\"
       send \"$pass\\r\"
   " > $expfile
   result=$(expect $expfile [email protected]$host | grep -i "inet addr")

   # Chopping out the IP from ifconfig output
   split ":" "$result"
   ip=$(echo "${split[1]}" | cut -d' ' -f1)


rm $expfile

This is not fool proof, but afaik SSH does not change it's behaviour when giving you the password prompt.
This also requires Expect software which i believe is standard for most linux distro's :)

If there is a kolon in any of the password you'll have bit of a problem, you'll have to change the delimeter to something which isn't in any of the strings for host, user or password.
In that case you'll have to add the new delimiter as argument 2 on the shellscript.

Usage: ./ <list-of-ip-user-pass.txt> [<delimiter>]

ps. It's semi tested, not sure how it would do with alot of machines but it works when I try it 2 times against my machine :P ds.

Hi Fredrik,

why not simply
while IFS=':' read host user pass
done < iplist.txt

Just not the way I do it :)
split is a habit that I have from using alot of perl :P

All roads leads to rome, if you have any other suggestions on how to do it then be my guest :)

Best regards

xNinja - The first thing you have to do is setup ssh-keys instead of plan-text password files(much safer). The next thing is you haven't described what you want to do with the ip once you have it (do you want to put the ip at the top or somewhere in the iptables rule(use insert or insert#),bottom(append, not recommended because the last rule should be a deny all policy))

If you follow those rules and modify this script to fit your needs you could have it done in 1 - 3 lines 8-} !

if you set the file ip.list like:

Then you could run:
for i in $(cat ip.list | awk -F : '{print $1}');do ssh $i 'echo;echo $HOSTNAME;df -h'; done

and get some results that could put you on the right path.

Good Luck!!!
