I want to use passwordless SSH for logging in. I used sshpass to achieve this.

The problem is when I am trying to install sshpass through sudo apt-get install sshpass. It asks for password.

After I enter the password, the following message is getting displayed:

Santosh_Nayak05 is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported.

I desperately want to use sshpass. I am new to Unix. Can any body tell me what is sudoers file and how I can install and use sshpass?
