I am a bit lost on the tools I can use to make a connection to a server in node-red. My idea is to shutdown a server from the platform, for that I was thinking to make an ssh connection with the server and run a command on the server's machine. Is this possible to do? If so, how?
Thanks in advance!
try the node-red-contrib-bigssh node
havent used it myself but it says in its description
You can use the exec node to run a remote command over SSH. Look up how to do a command line SSH connection and automatically run a command.
Best done if you set up certificate based access to the server so you don't have to faff with ids and passwords. Also, if you need to run a remote command requiring
sudo, you might want to mess with the servers
sudoers entries so that you don't need to enter an additional sudo password (which won't work via exec).
Thanks, that's just what I was looking for. I think I can work with that from now on
Ah yes, that makes sense. Thanks for the tip
