Set up SSH for use without a password?

Setting up SSH keys

On your local machine type

ssh-keygen -t rsa

Follow the instructions for creating your key. Once created, type:

scp ~/.ssh/ server_address:.ssh/authorized_keys2

This will copy your key onto our server - now test it by typing:

ssh server_address

On your local machine you will need an SSH client.
