Creating a ssh connection via your console can be kind of awkward.
$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org Password: ...... Last login: Thu Oct 23 21:06:01 2014 from ip-....
This can be way easier. Just create a ssh key with
ssh-keygen grab your public key and transfer it to your server.
Then create a file called
config in your
Host liplex # Host name HostName domain.tld # Domain User liplex # User IdentityFile ~/.ssh/liplex # Path to your private key
After this you can login via:
$ ssh liplex
