root@myhost:/# ssh -i /opt/id_rsa.pub firstname.lastname@example.org Enter passphrase for key '/opt/id_rsa.pub': email@example.com's password:
I have created key pair without passphrase, is it possible to get rid of passphrase prompt while connecting to remote server?
I would like to use key connection while using this command:
tar -c /opt/lampp/htdocs/somehost | ssh -i /opt/id_rsa.pub firstname.lastname@example.org 'tar -xvf - -C /opt/somefolder' > /dev/null 2>&1 &
So that files transfer continue even if terminal have lost connection.
You can remove (or change) the passphrase using the
-p option to
ssh-keygen. For example:
ssh-keygen -f /opt/id_rsa -p
Press Enter at the new passphrase prompt to remove the passphrase.
