October 13, 2014 4k views


I am trying to create SSH key.
I followed this guide

now I executed command cat ~/.ssh/

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 ?

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.

  • I’ve botched my SSH pretty hard and can’t get in that way so I have to set it up again via console,

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.
