Step 2: Settin up the keys.

Step #1: Generate DSA Key Pair

Use ssh-keygen command as follows:
$ ssh-keygen -t dsa

Enter file in which to save the key (/home/usernane/.ssh/id_dsa):  Press [Enter] key
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): myPassword
Enter same passphrase again: myPassword
Your identification has been saved in /home/username/.ssh/id_dsa.
Your public key has been saved in /home/username/.ssh/id_dsa.pub.
The key fingerprint is:
04:be:15:ca:1d:0a:1e:e2:a7:e5:de:98:4f:b1:a6:01 username@username-desktop

Caution: a) Please enter a passphrase different from your account password and confirm the same.
b) The public key is written to /home/you/.ssh/id_dsa.pub.
c) The private key is written to /home/you/.ssh/id_dsa.
d) It is important you never-ever give out your private key.

"vivek" as in Vivek Ramachandran?
No clue, but I did catch a couple major errors I made and corrected them. At that time is was very easy to lose work you did and then have to constantly re-enter instructables. Very frustrating The site is more more stable now. I think I too much in a hurry and forgot to check my work. I apologise to anyone who followed the old directions.
