My advisor has opened ssh access for me to his machine. From my machine (mac OSX), I type
and enter a password, I can connect to that machine.
But on my own machine, in the
~/.ssh directory, there is only one file
known_hosts, but there is no
I remember that I didn't generate ssh key, so these 2 files are not there is not superising.
My question is that, if I didn't generate ssh key and give the public key to my advisor, how can I connect to his machine? I did see some message the first time I connected to his machine, but I didn't remember what it is?
If I now generate a ssh key, would it break my access to my advisor's machine? (i.e. Do I need to give the generating public key to my advisor?)
