scp protocol

Hi guys ,

Recently we had an audit of our servers where we were told to use scp instead of rcp .

i would like to use passwordless scp for a specific user  from server A to server B .

Re: scp protocol

Hi:

 

Mattl gave a simple description of scp/sftp public key setup here:

Re: scp protocol

Hey;

 

I have a fairly detailed ssh users' guide available at http://www.olearycomputers.com/ll/ssh_guide.html which shows how to use public key authentication to get what you're looking for.

 

Once you're more familiar with ssh/pka, you can read the document that covers using ssh/pka as a means to directly access root and other sensitive accounts and why that's better than the standard "sudo su -" paradimg.  http://www.olearycomputers.com/ll/sudo_v_ssh-pka.html

 

Hope that helps.
