Any ideas welcome. I have never used this, but you could start different ssh-agent(1) and loading the key(s) you want to use to one or the other and let ssh(1) ask the dedicated ssh-agent(1) for a given host by some shell wrapping (i.e. mapping the -i filename to the correct ssh-agent(1) socket); HIH matthias -- Matthias Apitz t +49-89-61308 351 - f +49-89-61308 399 - m +49-170-4527211 e <g...@unixarea.de> - w http://www.unixarea.de/ Vote NO to EU The Lisbon Treaty: http://www.no-means-no.eu _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
