Re: OpenSSH and CVS

This is easy:

as the user that runs the CVS scripts:
    run ssh-keygen
    it will run thru and ask where you want the file (~/.ssh/identity will
be fine)
    when prompted for a password just hit return, and again on the next line
    now copy the contents of ~/.ssh/identity.pub to the
~/.ssh/authorized_keys file on the machines you need to get to, if it
doesn't exist create it.
    you should now be able to login without a password.
