ssh-copy-id[edit]

I'm afraid the use of "ssh-copy-id" isn't widespread. It probably is not going to help Windows users as well.

Maybe we should just explain somehow this:

$ scp $HOME/.ssh/4toolserver.pub willow.toolserver.org:.ssh
willow$ cat $HOME/.ssh/4toolserver.pub >> $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys

and

C:\WINDOWS\System32> pscp 4toolserver.pub willow.toolserver.org.ssh

etc. etc.  « Saper // קאַװע־הױז‎ »  13:41, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Just use putty-gen to generate your key and copy-paste it into .ssh/authorized_keys. You can do that with WinSCP or alternatively with cat >>.ssh/authorized_keys Bryan 13:49, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Note that we support the SSH key management extension, so users whose clients also support this (i think SecureCRT is the only one at the moment) can use a GUI to upload their key easily. River 15:14, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

ECDSA key fingerprint[edit]

It would be nice to know the fingerprint of various servers, for those who don't blindly say yes to ssh. Cheers, Nemo 08:54, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
