<ssh username="john" password="smith" host="webserver" command="ls" />
Executes a single command on the remote server.
Sometimes it is necessary to set specific configuration parameters on the ssh connection when connecting to a remote server. You can set them with the sshconfig nested tag. Set the parameters to specify connection and encryption options. These are the parameters as specified by the $methods parameter of the ssh2_connect function. See ssh2_connect for more information
sshconfig can also be used as project level parameter with a refid so the same parameters can be re-used across a project easily.
