First step is to generate a private-public key pair on the machine you copy from: ssh-keygen You can go with the defaults, and make sure you don't provide a password for usage. This can take a bit of time. Second step, after the key generation has finished, is to copy the public key to the server using: ssh-copy-id username@server with the appropriate ...

The "traditional" way was (is) to have a user account information locally, i.e in /etc/password, /etc/group etc. But that is not easy to manage when users freely access other computers on the network and/or have their home-directory on some networked drive. For the latter setup it is more easy to have user account information (incl password) in an LDAP ...

Traditionally, this is done with rexec. For example: rexec mymachine.batcave.ucsd.edu export DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive rexec mymachine.batcave.ucsd.edu apt-get update -q rexec mymachine.batcave.ucsd.edu apt-get install -q -y -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confdef" -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-confold" ssh would install ssh on the remote machine ...

A simple workaround would be to use dropbox, or any type of software that lets you sync between linux and windows (also see Unison and BitTorrent Sync).

This means opening up port 22 (ssh) or your router at home, or a higher port if your provider blocks incoming access on ports below 1024.

If you can install software on your work computer, then you could install win-sshfs and a ssh client such as PuTTY on your Windows machine.

This way, you'd only need the one ssh port open on ...

You can run a program from your home computer over SSH. The application will still run on the computer at home but be streamed over the internet. This can be done via X forwarding. An X forwarding tutorial can be found at the following 2 URL's; https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH/OpenSSH/PortForwarding ...

Or, even better, either add it to your ~/.ssh/config so that it will affect all connections initiated by your user, or use it per-host, or add it to the systemwide ssh client config. That way all applications using ssh will benefit, and you have to maintain configuration only in one place. See also the excerpt from the ssh man-page: -A Enables ...
