Hi Mark,

Thank you very much for the suggestion. It didnt strike me that I coud
try a ssh-agent. I had used a ssh agent on a Windows machine some time
ago for a similar problem. The current configuration is on a Solaris
machine, I hope there are ssh agents for Solaris... I'll do a search
and find out.

Once again, thanks for the suggestion.
