sshkeygen?
Authored by: serversurfer on Jan 23, '02 10:15:59PM
I have no idea what problem you are having, so here's a guess. If, when you created your RSA keypair, you chose to password-protect it, you will be unable to use it to login via a cron-script because the script will hang while waiting for the passphrase. (You can use top to see if the getmybackup script is still hanging around, not doing anything.) Try running getmybackup in the terminal and see if it asks for a passphrase. The solution is to generate a keypair with no passphrase and use those instead. Hope this helps.

sshkeygen?
Authored by: thesiren on Jun 11, '02 10:20:30PM

i got the ssh-keygen to almost work. it says that my local "~/.ssh/identity" file is not protected enough. i chmod'ed it to 600, but it just asks for the password as if i didn't have the rsa key call in my shell script.
