I'm trying to use my password protected remote node with the following cli command, but it doesn't work. What is the correct format to use a user/pass with the remote node in the cli?

./monero-wallet-cli --daemon-address  aaa:[email protected]:18089

A login (username + password), if set on the daemon (via the monerod --rpc-login flag), has to be passed via the --daemon-login flag upon launching monero-wallet-cli. That is, monero-wallet-cli --help states:

--daemon-login arg          Specify username[:password] for daemon                                       RPC client

Thus, in your example, the login would be passed as follows:

./monero-wallet-cli --daemon-address <domain-or-ip-of-remote-node>:<port-of-remote-node> --daemon-login <username>:<password>
