I need to connect to a SSH proxy server using a ssh keypair that I created specifically for it (not my default
id_rsa keypair). I see from the
ssh manual that there is a
-i option that I can use to specify the new SSH keypair that I want to use.
I'm not sure how to actually invoke the
-i option (I can't seem to find examples of the option in use). If this is the standard
ssh command, how would I add the option? For the purpose of this question, assume that my new keypair is called
ssh -N -D 8080 firstname.lastname@example.org
I tried adding
identityfile=/Users/username/.ssh/id_custom to the end and it didn't work. (I saw this option in ssh - How to specify key in SSHFS?).
