Some steps:
1)What is the source machine to initiate the ssh?
2)Which user is going to initiate the ssh?
Log in as that person on the source machine.

3)Generate a key, using keygen. When prompted for the password, enter nothing (blank)
4)This will create the and id_rsa
5)Copy the to the home of the user on the destination server that will be used in the ssh connection
6)chmod and change ownership of to 700 correct owner
7)Setup the ssh from source server to destination server.
