Posted October 13, 2014 4.3k views

Hello.

I am trying to create SSH key.
I followed this guide https://cloud.digitalocean.com/ssh_keys

now I executed command cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub

i got some output that I need to copy and paste in some field, but I tried to mark text and copy without success.

How can I copy this output ?

Tnx

Why are you using the console? I’d recommend just making SSH work (with a password), logging in through SSH, adding your public key and then locking it down again.

Some problem here… how about a helpful answer … anyone?

Same problem here cannot paste the command. I tried putty application and the connection is refused.
