Setting up passwordless SSH logins to your KVM Server

 

Configuring SSH Login to your KVM Server

1. Open the Cygwin Terminal.

2. Generate your SSH Keys with the command:
    ssh-keygen
    and accept the defaults.  Leave the password empty.

3. Log in to your KVM server with SSH at least once (this step may not be necessary, but I do it out of habit).
    ssh username@kvm.ip.add.ress  -- ie: ssh kvm@192.168.100.5

4. Copy your SSH Public key to the  KVM server
    ssh-copy-id username@kvm.ip.add.ress -- ie: ssh-copy-id dafyre@192.168.100.5

5. Test that you are able to log in to your KVM server without entering a password.
