sftp problem

Hi,

How do we configure a user account to login to an HP-UX machine using sftp, in such a way that, OS does not prompt for password? (ie, without a password)
Any thoughts?

Re: sftp problem

Hi:

Setup and use public keys among your servers.

These two links should provide you the information you need to easily do this:

http://sial.org/howto/openssh/publickey-auth/

http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1254688&admit=109447626+1227965745456+28353475

The 'known_hosts' file contains the public host keys for all known hosts. The per-user version is maintained automatically. Thus, whenever you connect from an unknown host, its key is added to the per-user file if you choose to acknowledge the fingerprint. If you don't, the connection can still be made, but you will be prompted the next time as if you had never connected.

The manpages for 'sshd' and 'ssh' offer more information.

Regards!
