Is this possible to change the path that ssh-keygen use the files from? The default one is $HOME/.ssh/ so is this possible to change this? Like for example when using ssh-keygen -R to remove the host from known_hosts file how can I provide another known_hosts file ($HOME/.ssh_other/known_hosts for example) other than the default one?


This is from the manpage of ssh-keygen:

ssh-keygen -R hostname [-f known_hosts_file]


-f filename
         Specifies the filename of the key file.
