Setting Up multiple SSH key for different machine

The most valuable thing would the the keys itself..
luckily got backup elsewhere ..

the customization to add for its to select correct keys for each machine..
simply create a file at “~/.ssh/config”
with content as such..

host skynet*
       IdentityFile ~/.ssh/namran.skynet.keys
       User namran
host *
       IdentityFile ~/.ssh/namran.home.keys
       User namran
       Port 1111
host *
       IdentityFile ~/.ssh/
       User namran
       Port 1222
       IdentityFile ~/.ssh/ae.keys
       User root

make sure the permission is correct for each keys and also config.

chmod 600 ~/.ssh/config
chmod 600 ~/.ssh/*.keys

then.. login to those machine..
would be as easy as

[namran@nb-namran]$ssh -l root ae
[root@AQ ~]#

p/s : yeah… finally written about this..

    Hello there, I believe your web site may be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks
    fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Aside from that,
    great blog!
