Do you connect to various SSH hosts from one computer ? Have you written own script to avoid writing long commands ? I did it the same, until I’ve found ssh_config
It’s really simple. You can define your own SSH configurations for various hosts with various configurations. All you have to do is create file
and write configuration there
Host [name] HostName [IP address] User [User name] Port [port] IdentityFile [path to your private key] Host [name-2] HostName [IP address] User [User name] PubkeyAuthentication no
All options I’ve mentioned are pretty straight forward ( I would say ) Of course this is not complete list of options you can use. You can find nice descriptive list i.e. on www.ssh.com
Last thing I will mention is how to actually do SSH login. Base on my above example I can use i.e.
in order connect to second configuration.
