Portable Passwordless SSH access


I use my mp3 player as a mass storage device and run portableapps on it for windows machines, with putty and winscp etc etc.

Has anyone tried passwordless SSH authentication of portable hardware going between computer systems? I mean, passwords are fine but i just wanna see if it can be done, so any help would be appreciated.

well if putty gives the same keys then there's nothing stopping it working. the machine you run it on is irrelevant.

There is not enough information here for me to help you.
1. Can you give us more detail on your ultimate goal?
2. Does the MP3 player run some form of SSH?
3. Does the MP3 player run an operating system?
4. If the MP3 player is running an operating system, what is it?

it was a little subtle ans i wasn't aware myself, but he is using apps at portableapps.com which would answer just about all of your q's.

Good eye. I really do not see what the problem, and hence the question, is. He should be able to create public/private key pairs and use them in the normal way.
