12.20.2 Configuring FTP
Create key pair on Trisul IPDR Hub node
On the Trisul-Hub server create a key pair like so into a file that is used for Trisul IPDR only. Use a file name
You can do these steps in the
ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096
Enter file in which to save the key (/root/.ssh/id_rsa): id_trisul_ipdr
# do not give passwords
Now you will have the key pair saved in the current directory
id_trisul_ipdr.pub # the public key (to be send to the target FTP server)
id_trisul_ipd # the private key (never to be shared, stored on Trisul-Hub)
Save the public key on the target server
Now put the
id_trisul_ipdr.pub on to the target server with the
Username in the IPDR FTP Settings.
# on the target server append to authorized_keys
cat id_trisul_ipdr.pub >> .ssh/authorized_keys
Test it out
On the Trisul-Hub node check if the server works. You can use the ssh command to test.
# ensure username@ip matches the FTP settings
ssh -i /usr/local/etc/trisul-hub/id_trisul_ipdr email@example.com
# if it logs in we are set
