private key with ssh / rsync / sftp

not simple as you think... ;)
Added by about 3 years ago

It's easy to log into a server with password authentication.

It's a tiny problem when you have to use private key. Below a short table that would help you.

program command
ssh ssh -i /path/to/key [email protected]
rsync rsync -e "ssh -i /path/to/key" local_files [email protected]:/destination/
sftp sftp -o IdentityFile=/path/to/key [email protected]

As you can see, the third one is quite strange ;)
