The ssh-agent on my Mac causes a pop-up for certain hosts:
[me@my-laptop]$ ssh cargo2 Last login: Tue Aug 3 09:26:43 2010 from trainwreck.arlut.utexas.edu [me@cargo2]$
But for other hosts:
[me@my-laptop]$ ssh red
And then I get the dreaded "Enter your password for the SSH key 'id_rsa'." pop-up. I know the ssh-agent is running and working because it worked for the first host.
How do I stop the pop-up for all hosts and make it always use the ssh-agent?
