Login with SSH without password (Mac, Linux)

1. Go to computer where you want to connect from. Check the folder $HOME/.ssh/, if there is a file id_rsa.pub then skip this step. Otherwise generate generate new rsa keys using the following command:

ssh-keygen -t rsa

2. Go to computer where you want to connect with ssh to. Check the folder $HOME/.ssh/, if it exists then skip this step otherwise create new one with the command:

mkdir -p .ssh

3. Go back to computer where you want to connect from and use the command below to copy public key, it will ask your password for the last one time:

cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh user_on_remote_computer@remote_computer_host  'cat >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys'

4. We are ready! Connect without entering password:

ssh user_on_remote_computer@remote_computer_host

Enjoy!
