“Setting up remote server authentication” will never be on your job description. It’s not one of those desirable responsibilities that convinces talented people to move across the country and pursue the job of their dreams.

But at that dream job, you might be asked to set up an SSH key. You’d better be ready.

In this course, we will learn the fundamentals of creating SSH keys and configuring them for connectivity to a remote server. We’ll figure out how to:

  • tunnel SSH connections for easier local debugging
  • set up configuration files to simplify the aspect of connecting to remote servers
  • use security features like blocking incoming connections

Being prepared is key. Learn the skills now!

    How will you use what you learned from this collection?

    I was actually hoping it would shed some light on a convenient way to manage multiple ssh keys on a Mac.

    This was a good overview of what you can do with ssh on remote servers but I can't say I needed anything specific that was revealed. I'd have to google something more specifically at a time of need probably.

    What was your strongest take away from this course?

    It would be great if course would contain a note that some sort of VPS is needed in order to be able to run the commands and SSH into our own remote server, otherwise there is no opportunity to try it first hand and go through all the steps.

    What would make this course a 7 for you?
    1. A quick first lesson to explain how to install/activate the ssh server on localhost
    2. a bonus lesson in the end to explain how to config a git remote repository using ssh alias (or config file) could be useful
