To add some quality of life when transfering files and accessing my server, I set up key based authentication.

I already had my keys created as I was using them for another server. In case you still need to create yours, you can type:


To add your public key to the remote server from Windows, you can use this PowerShell:

type $env:USERPROFILE\.ssh\ | ssh your-user@remote-server "cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys"

If you’re on a linux host, them you can rely on OpenSSH and use the command bellow:

ssh-copy-id your-user@remote-server
