I'm ssh into a remote host (linux, fedora) and i want to do ssh operation(git with bitbucket) there. There is ssh-agent running on that machine,
$ ps -e|grep sh-agent 2203 ? 00:00:00 ssh-agent
but when I want to git, it requires me to enter the passphrase
$ git pull Enter passphrase for key '/user/wgong/home/.ssh/id_rsa':
Note: if I operate on that machine locally, it won't ask me to enter the passphrase
In my opinion the best way of using ssh
Before using Git add your key to ssh-agent
Start ssh-agent if not started.
$ eval `ssh-agent -s`
Add your private key using ssh-add
$ ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa_key Enter passphrase for /home/user/.ssh/id_rsa_key: Identity added: /home/user/.ssh/id_rsa_key (/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa_key)
Check if the key is added (parameter is a lowercase l).
$ ssh-add -l 2048 55:96:1a:b1:31:f6:f0:6f:d8:a7:49:1a:e5:4c:94:6f /home/user/.ssh/id_rsa_key (RSA)
Try to connect to your git server
$ ssh git.example.com
You can now use git without passing questions
