One way I know of to do what you are wanting, is to create the config
file "on the fly". Then execute the command line using the config file
that you just created. Since the config file is just an ascii text
file, it should be simple to generate using the password and ip address
from your database after the user clicks your "Connect" button.
Hope this helps.
