passwordless ssh login

i know it's easy and everything, but i can never remember this - so here goes - no details, no nothing. just 4 steps to passwordless ssh login

  1. ssh-keygen -t rsa || this generates the key
  2. cat ~/.ssh/ || this gets the key
  3. ssh into remote server
  4. add the output of the cat to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2

so there you go. geeky

/me pauses briefly to add geeky to my spell check

enough for ya?

btw very bad from a security point of view - so don't do this on your laptops ;)
