Well i want to set up a ssh key pair between two machines making sure that i should be asking password only once. Now problem is when i generate key pairs first i have to check if
1) if ~/.ssh file exists in remote machines. If not, create one
2) scp the public key to remote machine
3) cat rsa.pub >> authorized_keys in remote machine.
Now each of this step requires ssh/scp. Can someone tell me how to do this all by prompting for password only once.
