alternative to keychain
Authored by: lone mac on Mar 01, '02 09:12:29PM
Good post, frjo! An alternative which I came across and find a bit easier to use is Kevin Van Vechten's SSHAgentServices for Mac OS X. After having installed this executable as directed, all I need to do after booting up (or logging in) is to open a terminal window and type: ssh-add ~/.ssh/identity ~/.ssh/id_dsa After supplying the necessary passphrases, I can start an SSH session or SCP transfer from any terminal window without having to retype my passphrase!
