Ssh


ISSUE: Trying to auto connect to another linux box without typing the password or passcode when prompt.

I read from one of the web documents that i need to put in the authorized_key file onto the targeted host so that i can login without typing the password.

I have SSH installed into both my linux boxes. But i can't find the .ssh directory. It is not found in the '/root' directory as mentioned in the installation documents.

Any idea how i can find it? is it always created upon installation?

I tested SSH with 'scp' and it works.

The .ssh directory exists in your home directory too.
You can create one if it does not.
