How to securely control another Mac over the internet
Authored by: bryan3605 on May 13, '05 12:51:41AM

I've got the "dads" public key in my "powerbook" in the corect position and I've turned on port forwarding for port 22 on my router to my "powerbook's" IP, but I'm not sure where the Private key needs to go on the "dads" system. It is currently in the top level of the "dads" user account. Do I need to create a /.ssh directory to place this file in?

When I double click on the teminal icon on the "dad" computer, I get a message saying "connection refused."

Yes, the "dad's" private key should go in /Users/dads_username/.ssh/ on "dad's" computer. Permissions should be 600 on the directory.
