I'm using kubuntu and I generated a key using this command:
mkdir ~/.ssh chmod 700 ~/.ssh ssh-keygen -t rsa
and I prompted the passphrase and the location here:
Generating public/private rsa key pair. Enter file in which to save the key (/home/b/.ssh/id_rsa): Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): Enter same passphrase again: Your identification has been saved in /home/b/.ssh/id_rsa. Your public key has been saved in /home/b/.ssh/id_rsa.pub.
I send to the host the public key file and when I try to clone the git repository it ask me a password (of himself, that I don't have). From the other side they say that everything is ok.
I have three files in the
/.ssh: known_hosts, mykey.txt (private key) and mykey.txt.pub (public key).
What do I have to do for cloning the repository without that it ask me the password?
I don't know about the server side. I guess they have ssh and they used that command because they did it before.
