2 steps to ssh without passwords

Situation: You are on machine A, and you want to log in machine B without having to enter your password each time. On machine A: type: ssh-keygen -t rsa then press enter for default settings, and make sure you don't enter any paraphrase. Now, you need to send your public key to machine B. type: cat .ssh/ | ssh b@B 'cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys' That's it !
