I am developing a script that will automatically keep a folder on two workstations synchronized using rsync. So far, I have gotten everything to work but I have one small thing I haven't figured out. Once, the rsync command is executed, it prompts for the password of the other workstation. However, I haven't been able to find a way to automatically enter that password once prompted in the terminal. I tried using the expect command, but that didn't work as the command didn't execute until after I enter the password.
Is there a solution to this?
Here is my script. I have two instances of the same VM, hence the same usernames
RSYNC_OPTIONS="-avh --progress /home/rams/Documents/ [email protected]:/home/rams/Downloads/"
inotifywait -e modify $LOCAL
