• scp from one box to another (500HD to 8000PVR)


    created a key with

    Code
    dropbearkey -t rsa -f id_rsa


    copy & paste the resultant text into file /.sh/authorized_keys/id_rsa on both boxes

    Code
    scp -i /.ssh/authorized_keys/id_rsa /media/hdd/my_ip.txt root@192.168.1.175:/media/hdd


    error:-


    /usr/bin/dbclient: exited: string too long


    any ideas

  • got past that bit
    seems that dropbear keeps its files in
    /etc/dropbear/dropbear_rsa_host_key


    now getting an error:-
    n.n.n.n is not in the trusted hosts file

  • don't think I screwed up, I used
    dropbearkey -t rsa -f id_rsa > /tmp/some_key


    then copied & renamed the file to /.ssh/authorized_keys

  • Do it once on that way (for dreams with dropbear)


    1. Client box


    Code
    dropbearkey -t rsa -f ~/.ssh/mykey


    Example output:


    Public key portion is:
    ssh-rsa AAB3NzaVVVVAAADDfghEEREtg&gwCRlm4L8NZMBcLORuV3j+zgKE5aoygNWs+GWpyZywI946yNHfm3leJlz/yphGCx5sXJz2tgLMeJJ45_i_have_more_than_one_dreambox_3EdzNQzrA+alIowx0H8Zm5O3iKuLjlej+qNbnO2faAD+6KArHP5sntxj2j4EkkQ6M36RomFLb9 root@dm8888
    Fingerprint: md5 cc:42:56:re:e0:4f:0e:de:58:66:40:20:56:b3:se:ff


    2. Serverbox


    Create a authorized_keys file in .ssh and paste the key into it.
    But only the bold marked line from the example above. For sure do not take this key here.
    Create your own :D



    3. Connect to the serverbox


    Code
    ssh -i ~/.ssh/mykey root@ip_of_the_box


    Check this once. No pw is required in that case.
    And also scp commands are working.
