Re: Multiple calls to channel_request_exec()

in fact, no (read
So, after the command has been executed, channel is closed and you
to open new channel to execute new command. So, you can't for example
execute su another user with a channel_request_exec, and then some another
command under the another user.

i have similar task and i use channel_request_shell. to communicate with
serever. The only problem with this way is than prompt could change during
the shell session and you must know shell prompt before you begin

for my project i wrote simple c++ libssh wrapper to solve all these
