Use identical keys

Sooner or later you will find out, that you have to modify your key in Putty. From some Linux systems you might even get notified that there are illegal access trials: In that case delete the file ~/.ssh/known_hosts. However you might think about creating keys only once and copy them repeatedly….

1. Copy the following files created earlier, e.g.. using FTP into the download directory:

  • dropbear_rsa_host_key
  • dropbear_dss_host_key

If you have a Fritz!Box without USB memory you have to store them on an external FTP server. IMPORTANT: the keys must not be accessible unrestricted, the FTP server should require authentication!

2. Now you can add the following code replacing the one before.
