In windows we have created a batch file to login into a machine via putty. On clicking the batch file it logins into that machine. Is it possible to create a script in ubuntu to do the same task?

Create a launcher server.desktop with the following content:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Server Name
Exec=ssh [email protected]

and give it execution permissions.

Obviously you should put the real user and the real in the Exec= line.

To allow to choose the username, substitute the Exec= line with the following:

Exec=sh -c 'user=$(zenity --entry --title="Set username" --text="Username: " --entry-text="$USER"); if [ -n "$user" ]; then ssh [email protected]; else exit; fi'
