I can do 'ssh anne@borg' and connect to the remote box - no problem, and the
key is passed. What I'm trying to do is find the commands I will need so
that I can put together a script to do regular copies across the lan.
I'll struggle on with the docs - it's no worse than the first time I got
gpg-agent going ;-)
You need to make the keys with no passphrase if you want it
to run automatically when no one will be able to supply it.
Or you could just nfs mount the remote space and use
it directly. That might be more convenient, but perhaps
more susceptible to operator-error deletions.
