Thanks to Karl Vogel, Crist Clark and Michael Maciolek who reply my mail.
# echo framemaker | ssh $sun newgrp case
works ok.

Hi guys,

I'm needing to execute a ssh in a solaris box using a different gid.
Even if I do a newgrp xxx the ssh execute a new shell and prompt the
default gid.
I found a solution in Linux using the command sg:
# id dveiga
uid=60001805(dveiga) gid=507(cad)
# ssh linux "sg case 'touch /tmp/xxxx'"
# ssh linux ls -l /tmp/xxxx
-rw-r--r--  1 dveiga case 0 Jan 24 14:58 /tmp/xxxx

Is there a similar command for Solaris? Are there another way to do it?
