I have some thoroughly trusted computers running linux, from which I
would like to ssh to another server on a regular basis.

my problems is that I would like the trusted computers to just store
my passwords and pass them along, like "ssh -l user -p password
server" is not supported. my second problem is that my service
provider will drop the connection if there is more than 5 minutes
inactivity. so, I need the client to send NUL characters every so
often. securecrt does this, but unfortunately, it is not available on
mandrake linux 9.1.

are there any recommended solutions? help appreciated.
