NodeExternal SSH Tool


Allows running an external program on another machine on the input data. The node creates an SSH connection to a remote host, transfers the input data via sftp (as comma separated values), executes the specified command and transfers back the result file, assuming that the command generated a file with comma separated values.
NOTE: KNIME has no control over the execution of the external tool. There will be no progress, no failure message, and exceptions will not be caught. Highlighting will not work across this node. Colors are lost (the Color Manager node must be inserted in the flow to re-generate colors).
For additional SSH settings, please refer to the preference page "General" - "Network Connections" - "SSH2". There the directory with the known_hosts file and the private key file can be specified.
