Menu driven SSH


I have quite a lot of servers where I need to ssh at workplace and I generally don’t remember all of them, so I wrote a simple yet useful script. In all the servers I have already copied my key so I dont need a password to login. Without much ado, here is the script.

echo “Enter the server name:”
echo “1. redhat”
echo “2. fedora”

read server

if [ “$server” = “1” ]; then
ssh amit@redhat
else if [ “$server” = “2” ]; then
ssh amit@fedora
echo “Not a valid choice”

You can download the script ssh_menu here.
