remote login using Linux

Specs: Linux
I've this problem using the soft-keys of the program if I use the script file i created.

The script file:

#! /bin/bash

xhost +
ssh hostname
read -e password
export DISPLAY=hostname:0;
/usr/program/ 3 hostname;

The above command is the same if I open a Terminal and key the above command, I'll be able to use the soft-keys (eg F1 - password, etc) of the software "program"

But, if I use the shell script above, I'm not able to use the software soft-keys I've pre-defined.

Any help?

I'm not sure I understand what your script is doing. You turn off access control, run SSH, do something you haven't put in your script, logout, then store user input in the variable password you don't do anything with, then export a variable on your host, and then run some other script on your host computer.

I think your problem is that you need to use expect.
