I want to be able to use scp from the firewall to transfer a config file to a remote server without entering a password. So I need to store the remote user's public ssh key in the equivalent of an authorized_keys file on the firewall. Is this possible?
What I'm trying to do is schedule an automatic pull of the running-config.xml down to a server. I want to do this like this:
ssh 10.2.1.254 scp export configuration to firstname.lastname@example.org:. from running-config.xml
10.2.1.254 is my firewall. I have the key set up in the other direction so the ssh command goes through without a password, but the reverse direction (the scp command) doesn't work without a password.
