SSH (password less authentication) to server/machine from docker container?


(Pushpabuzz) #1

Please find the steps I have tried for this task ( by the way - I am new to this concept) :

installed Docker in Ubuntu

docker pull ubuntu image

Used docker run -it to create a container

Checked the server response ( ping -c 4 ) and working fine.

Now I need help/idea to created a password less authentication btw server and container.

Container - root permissions

Server - username : rajrcz , server :

I found the below link from docker forums but not helpful.

could you please help me here if you are aware of this task? or done before

that seems pretty scary to allow a container unaudited access to the docker host.

you did not include the the link u referenced.

researching (google search) how to do unprompted ssh access might give you a solution.

I know i helped a company accomplish this a couple years ago by writing some ssh scripts.

the problem has nothing to do with docker.
