Here’s how you generate a public/private RSA key pair using the ssh-keygen command:
ssh-keygen -t rsa
Here’s how you copy your public SSH key to a remote serve such that you authenticate via your private key instead of your password.
ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub user@hostname
Here’s how you create a reverse SSH tunnel from a server. From the destination server, you’ll set up an SSH tunnel into a relay server.
ssh -fN -R 10022:localhost:22 firstname.lastname@example.org
From the relay server, you can now SSH into the destination server.
ssh destination@localhost -p 10022
