Setting up public key access to SSH host

Rather than manually creating the authorized_keys file in the ‘.ssh’ directory on the host computer
you want to set up public key access for, you can instead use:

ssh-copy-id -i rsa.pub user@host

Which will use the rsa.pub public key and automatically create the file
in the correct users directory.
