- Functions (user-defined functions such as genpasswd)
- Built in such as pwd
- Files such as /bin/date
Bash aliases not running or working over ssh client on Unix based system
To solve this problem run ssh command as follows:
$ ssh -t user@remote /bin/bash -ic 'your-alias-here'
$ ssh -t user@remote /bin/bash -ic 'file_repl'
In short run the following command to run bash alias called ll:
$ ssh -t email@example.com -ic 'll'
