    Strange ssh problem?


    Hi all,

    I am trying to run a script on a server remotely with ssh using the below command with no success

    ssh user@server.edu sh foldername/myscript.sh

    and the script is:
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    unset DISPLAY
    matlab > matlab.out 2>&1 << EOF
    matlabfile
    print file
    exit
    EOF
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    here "matlab" is a program which runs another script called "matlabfile"
    But the script somehow does not run.

    I know for a fact that the way I am calling the script through ssh is right and I am pointing in the right location of the script. However the fact that is in a folder which is not my main user directory causes it to not be able to run through ssh. I can run it fine through ssh if the script is in the main user directory but not if it is in a folder within the main directory.

    I can also confirm that if I connect to the server and cd into the folder and run it from there (sh myscript.sh), it also runs just fine.

    This is driving me crazy.

    Can anyone help?
    Thanks!
