# OSX ssh-copy-id

Posted by ZedTuX 0n R00t on September 18, 2014

In the case you’re using OSX and you would like to use the ssh-copy-id command in order to import your SSH key to a server (which avoid the server to ask your user password), then you can install it really quickly thanks to Homebrew:

1
$brew install ssh-copy-id  Then just do something like the following: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8$ ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub zedtux@zedroot.org
ssh-copy-id: INFO: attempting to log in with the new key(s), to filter out any that are already installed
ssh-copy-id: INFO: 1 key(s) remain to be installed -- if you are prompted now it is to install the new keys
