Tips

 

SSH

  • Setup the passphrase authentication
    1. generate a DSA key
      $ssh-keygen -t dsa
      
    2. put the public key in authorized keys in the remote host
      $scp ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub name@remort.host:
      $ssh name@remort.host
      $mkdir .ssh
      $chmod 700 .ssh
      $cd .ssh
      $touch authorized_keys2
      $chmod 600 authorized_keys2
      $cat ~/id_dsa.pub >> authorized_keys2
      $rm ~/id_dsa.pub
      
    3. in the AOSC department servers, follow below instead of the previous step
      $cd .ssh
      $cat id_dsa.pub >> authorized_keys2
      $chmod 600 authorized_keys2
