You can try

Make sure include your real username, machine name, and scriptname. Also make sure ssh is installed on machineb. Also you need to make sure that ssh-agent is started to enable the ssh program to connect without prompting you for a password.
rsh can also be used, but is not as secure, although if both machines are behind a firewall, then rsh might be easier.

Or you may want to use (the very unsecure) telnet. I have successfully used the telnet facility built in to "Ant" to do this sort of thing under the control of Java.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
