scp option


I always coping files from my local computer to server using scp. Every time it ask me for username and password. Is it possible to avoid checking password procedure and to write scp command in one line (with no password checking).

I followed until section 4 and able to connect but have such message. Problem is that remote server doesn't have the X running. Should I follow next steps too?

I made the ssh work without password fo a couple of users. However I cannot make it work for one user. This user has "identity.pub" in the directory. Can this file cause some problems?

Thanks

you can take it one step further and make a script called ssh-to (in /usr/bin):
#!/bin/sh
ssh `basename $0` $*

then create link
ln -s ssh-to servername

now you only have to type servername to ssh to that host

This came from the O'reilly book called "Linux Server Hacks"

Did you put both the ssh-to script and the link in /usr/bin? basename basically means take the name of the link file and use it as the host paramer in the ssh command.

I do not always follow why people so dislike entering a password.
Doesn't entering your password = security?
I never want any program, Windows or Linux, to "remember" my password.

I agree the key should have a good passphase, I wouldn't leave it blank. You only have to type it once at the beginning of your session, not that big of a deal.

When I use passphrase it always ask for the password. When passphrase is not specify I can connect.
