plink for Remote Commands
rsync.net users can run a fair number of very useful unix commands remotely, inside of their accounts. The remote commands that you are able to run are detailed in this document.
Windows users can run these remote UNIX commands in their rsync.net account with ‘plink’.
You can download plink from this page.
It is a single .exe file and you can just put it in your c:\windows directory (or anywhere else you’d like).
Here is an example of changing your rsync.net account password by running ‘passwd’ remotely:
plink.exe -t email@example.com passwd
Here is an example of listing the contents of your rsync.net account by running ‘ls’ remotely:
plink.exe firstname.lastname@example.org ls
Here is an example of checking the sha256 checksum of one of your files by running ‘sha256’ remotely:
plink.exe email@example.com sha256 your/dir/your/file.txt
