[smokeping-users] remote user problem

Check the man page for the sudoers file.   There is a flag called 
NOPASSWD that you can set on a user that means they will not be prompted 
for a password when executing privileged commands.    There are some 
related gotchas to set it up properly though, so a read through the man 
page is highly recommended.

Alternatively, script the password entry using expect.  ;)
