I've been trying to get
ssh-add working on a RaspberryPi running Raspbian.
I can start
ssh-agent , when I do it gives the following output into the terminal.
SSH_AUTH_SOCK=/tmp/ssh-06TcpPflMg58/agent.2806; export SSH_AUTH_SOCK; SSH_AGENT_PID=2807; export SSH_AGENT_PID; echo Agent pid 2807;
If I run
ps aux | grep ssh I can see it is running.
Then I try to run
ssh-add in order to add my key passphrase, and I get the following.
Could not open a connection to your authentication agent.
What's your current thoughts on this?
Your shell is meant to evaluate that shell code output by
ssh-agent . Run this instead.
Or if you've started ssh-agent already, copy paste it to your shell prompt (assuming you're running a bourne-like shell).
ssh commands need to know how to talk to the
ssh-agent , they know that from the
SSH_AUTH_SOCK environment variable.
