Workflow to set command in terminal on remote computer

Recommended Posts



I'm running a Raspberrry Pi with Pi-Hole. And I want a workflow to disable the pi-hole from my mac.


I use the "Run Script" with following commands:


ssh pi@
pihole disable

Language is set to /bin/bash/


But I didn't get an error nor did the pi-hole disable. Sure I can enter the same command local from my mac - it's working.


What am I doing wrong?

It won't work that way because we're talking about a script here, not an interactive shell session. When you run your first command (ssh pi@...) in an interactive shell, it opens an SSH session on the remote machine, and you are actually entering your second command in the SSH session.

You can tell SSH to run commands on remote machines, though, and yours would be something like: ssh pi@ pihole disable

I do this, but use sshpass like this:


sshpass -p yourpasswordhere ssh pi@pihole 'pihole disable'


sshpass is not installed on Macs by default. I installed using home-brew. Be sure you understand any security issues this may cause on your Mac.
