Secure Shell (SSH) Tips & Tricks:

Passwordless SSH Aunthentication

ssh-keygen  [Press enter key 3 times]
ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub -p 2222 user@example.com
  user@example.com's password:xxxxxxxxxxx
ssh -p 2222 user@example.com

Alternative:

Add the following to .bashrc file:

alias easyssh='sshpass -p passwd ssh user@example.com -p 2222'

But this may be a security issue as password can be found from logs & this file.

MySQL connection over SSH tunnel

ssh -f user@ssh.server.com -L 3307:mysql1.server.com:3306 -N

Then at localhost:

mysql -h 127.0.0.1 -P 3307 -u dbuser -p db

Use Key-less SSH login to skip password entry.


Copy files via SSH

scp -rp FILE_NAME USERNAME@HOST:DEST_PATH
sshpass -p nsroot scp -rp nsroot@10.107.88.78:/nsconfig/ns.conf conf.txt
