To set up a password-less SSH Login:

ssh/sftp/scp from A to B without being prompted for a password: Connect to A type: ssh-keygen -t rsa default directory for keyfiles will be ~/.ssh/ if you do not want to be prompted, leave passphrase blank copy the contents of .ssh/id_rsa.pub (there should only be one line) place this line on B, in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys That's it, you should now be able to ssh/sftp/scp from A to B without being prompted for a password!
