>From ssh(1): ~/.ssh/ This directory is the default location for all user‐specific con‐ figuration and authentication information.

So 700 is not only possible, but also recommended. :-) Yuri _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
