SYNOPSIS

ssh-copy-id [-lv] [-i keyfile] [-o option] [-p port] [user @hostname]

DESCRIPTION

The ssh-copy-id utility copies public keys to a remote host’s ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file (creating the file and directory, if required).

The following options are available:
-i file
  Copy the public key contained in file. This option can be specified multiple times and can be combined with the -l option. If a private key is specified and a public key is found then the public key will be used.
-l Copy the keys currently held by ssh-agent(1). This is the default if the -i option was not specified.
-o ssh-option
  Pass this option directly to ssh(1). This option can be specified multiple times.
-p port
  Connect to the specified port on the remote host instead of the default.
-v Pass -v to ssh(1).

The remaining arguments are a list of remote hosts to connect to, each one optionally qualified by a user name.

EXIT STATUS


.Ex -std

EXAMPLES

To send a specific key to multiple hosts:

    $ ssh-copy-id -i /path/to/keyfile.pub user@host1 user@host2 user@host3

HISTORY

The ssh-copy-id utility was written by
.An Eitan Adler Aq eadler@FreeBSD.org as a drop-in replacement for an existing utility included with OpenSSH.
