Check your home directory in the local machine for a .ssh directory. If it's there, look inside for a file named or If neither exists, type <strong>ssh-keygen -t rsa</strong><br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Just press enter for passphrase, unless you want one. This creates a 1024 bit RSA version 2 keypair (other options for other types) in $HOME/.ssh/identity and $HOME/.ssh/, OR in $HOME/.ssh/id_rsa and $HOME/.ssh/<br><br>&nbsp;&nbsp; 2. Put a copy of or (whichever you have) into your home directory on the remote machine:<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; scp $HOME/.ssh/<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; (note the ending dot on the line above, it means "same filename")<br><br>&nbsp;&nbsp; 3. ssh into the remote box with a password, then do this:<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Check to see if you have a .ssh directory there. If not,<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; mkdir .ssh<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; chmod 750 .ssh<br><br>&nbsp;&nbsp; 4. If there is no file in the .ssh directory named authorized keys:<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; cp .ssh/authorized_keys<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; or<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; cp .ssh/authorized_keys<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; chmod 600 .ssh/authorized_keys<br><br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; If .ssh/authorized_keys already exists: cat &gt;&gt; .ssh/authorized_keys or<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; cat &gt;&gt; .ssh/authorized_keys<br><br>&nbsp;&nbsp; 5. Now log out of the remote machine and ssh into it again. You should be logged into your account on the remote machine without having to type a password.<br _mce_bogus="1"></p>linux disk copy2006-06-08T15:42:15+00:00senex/blog/author/senex/<p>To copy from one disk to another and preserve permissions do the following:<br></p><p><br></p><p>cd /dir/to/copy<br>tar -cf - * .[A-z]* | tar -C /mnt/new -xvf -</p>
