Alpine without a password

Line: 18 to 18
  You need to set up a public-private key pair. This is usually done using ssh-keygen, which you run on the client computer (the one you run Alpine on):
Changed:
<
<
  • From a shell prompt, type ssh-keygen -t rsa.
>
>
  • From a shell prompt, type ssh-keygen.
 
  • ssh-keygen will generate some random numbers, then ask you where to put the private key. The default should be fine, in most cases.
Line: 26 to 26
 
  • Then it will generate the file you specified, and another file in the same place with .pub on the end. This is your public key - the one you want to put on the IMAP server.
Changed:
<
<
  • To authorize connections from your alpine machine to the IMAP server, you need to insert the contents of your public key into the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file in your Linux cluster home directory. You can have more than one public key in that file, but each needs to be on its own line, and NOT WORD WRAPPED. That means using the -w flag if you edit it with Pico.
