    I read this tutorial a while back and I have been successfully using key based login ever since. However, I've started using Ubuntu for my desktop and I'm wondering that the best method is under Linux to use my keys and long in to my servers.

    Thanks for any info :)

    You can install PuTTY on Ubuntu, too. Maybe that works (I haven't tested it, though...).

    I just tried putty with Ubuntu - it works, but is kind of clunky. I'd love to find a way to auto login and then use my native terminal. I've been reading the open ssh website and there are command line tools but they seem to be a lot of work (for someone lazy like myself). Maybe I can find a shell script or something that used the command line tools. If I find something I'll post it.

    insn't there a .sshrc like file like you can define for different progs? Usually you can set different auto stuff in the .*rc files and they are usually located at /home/$username
