Take a look at 'man ssh-keygen' and 'man ssh-copy-id'. And never allow direct root access.

This overview will give you the steps.

bash SSH

I forgot to get the address where I stole this from, but this will let you log in just fine.

Let say you want to access to a machine with IP 10.0.0.4, and make sure you have command ssh, ssh-keygen, ssh-copy-id.

First, generate the ‘key’, the key will be used to open the remote machine’s door.

ssh-keygen

You will see something like that

Enter file in which to save the key (/home/myname/.ssh/id_rsa):

Whatever it appears just press enter until it ends, press enter for passphase as well.

Okay, the ‘key’ will be generated, something looks like ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub

Copy over the ‘key’ to remote machine, and enter your password

ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub mysurface@10.0.0.4


Done. Now you can ssh 10.0.0.4 with username mysurface without password.

ssh mysurface@10.0.0.4

Thanks gbkabitz, it has been almost 5 years since I asked this question. Now, I have mastered the art of it
