SSH Keys Issue


When running rsync you get an error a bit like this:

  The authenticity of host ' (' can't be established.
  ECDSA key fingerprint is 65:76:dc:ba:74:d6:c7:75:7f:21:58:c6:66:42:23:7d.

You need to add your key to the remote device to be trusted, then you won't get asked for password on each connection (a real pain when using scripts).

This Worked for Us in the End

From the command line:

  Press enter for every prompt
  This will place your local key in the remote server

Then run this:

  ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/
  Enter the remote server password

Now you should be able to ssh to the server without a password

  ssh ipaddress
