I want to use multiple private keys to connect to different servers or different portions of the same server (my uses are system administration of server, administration of Git, and normal Git usage within the same server). I tried simply stacking the keys in the
id_rsa files to no avail.
Apparently a straightforward way to do this is to use the command
ssh -i <key location> [email protected]
That is quite cumbersome.
Any suggestions as to how to go about doing this a bit easier?
Host myshortname realname.example.com HostName realname.example.com IdentityFile ~/.ssh/realname_rsa # private key for realname User remoteusername Host myother realname2.example.org HostName realname2.example.org IdentityFile ~/.ssh/realname2_rsa # different private key for realname2 User remoteusername
Then you can use the following to connect:
And so on.
