I'm struggling with the concept of SSH Agent Forwarding.
This is what I've done so far:
- Create default identity local (ssh-keygen)
- Install the public key on bitbucket
Now I want to connect to a server like ssh
Then I would normally create a key on the server with ssh-keygen and again, copy the public key and add it to my bitbucket SSH keys. after that I can clone my SSH repository and pull/push to the bitbucket repository. But that is not the way to do it.
How can I make sure I don't have to create a key on my server? I've read many tutorials like this but I'm still struggling with the ssh agent forwarding.
I've tried to do this tutorial but I'm already stuck at step 1. They say you need to add the following text to your config file (located at ~/.ssh/config):
Host example.com ForwardAgent yes
My config file looks like this before the first step:
Host bitbucket.org IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa
After the step it looks like this:
Host bitbucket.org IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa Host mysite.be ForwardAgent yes
To try if it works you need to execute the following command on your server:
ssh -T firstname.lastname@example.org
Tried this but I'm getting the error
Permission denied (publickey). on my server.
