I assume you mean from a shell script (i.e bash or similar).
What flavour CGI do you write? I've got perl scripts connecting
fine from the command line; there's nothing special about
CGI environments in that respect.
Of course from a user point of view, any account that can read the script
can suss out the password, which may not be what you want.
