[macos] How to install sshpass on mac?

I would like to automate ssh login from my mac.

It does have a simple solution:

sshpass -p my_password ssh m_username@hostname

but my problem is installing sshpass on my mac.

This question is related to macos ssh sshpass

The answer is


For the simple reason:

Andy-B-MacBook:~ l.admin$ brew install sshpass
Error: No available formula with the name "sshpass"
We won't add sshpass because it makes it too easy for novice SSH users to
ruin SSH's security.

Thus, the answer to do the curl / configure / install worked great for me on Mac.


Another option in 2020 is this homebrew tap, maintained by esolitos

brew install esolitos/ipa/sshpass

Some years have passed and there is now a proper Homebrew Tap for sshpass, maintained by Aleks Hudochenkov. To install sshpass from this tap, run:

brew install hudochenkov/sshpass/sshpass

Solution provided by lukesUbuntu from github works for me:

Just use brew

$ brew install http://git.io/sshpass.rb

Following worked for me

curl -O -L  https://sourceforge.net/projects/sshpass/files/sshpass/1.06/sshpass-1.06.tar.gz && tar xvzf sshpass-1.06.tar.gz
cd sshpass-1.06/
./configure
sudo make install

Please follow the steps below to install sshpass in mac.

curl -O -L https://fossies.org/linux/privat/sshpass-1.06.tar.gz && tar xvzf sshpass-1.06.tar.gz

cd sshpass-1.06

./configure

sudo make install
