Add a cvs account ____________________ Log in to meatloaf change the passwd, shadow and group file. passwd: add new user cbonill:x:10019:10019:Carlos Bonilla :/home/cbonill:/bin/cvsh update the number 19 to 20 and so on notice that the login is cvsh shell written by admin - change shadow: cbonill:x:14330:0:99999:7::: (can copy numbers and all change just the name) add to group: cbonill:*:10019:cbonill make sure id number is same! add to gocvs: gocvs:*:82:gocvs,cherry,dwight,ball,shuai, etc - make the directories /home/username/.ssh - send email to get the ssh keys generated. Okay, we have created an account on the server for Carlos. Carlos, the standard way we manage authentication on this server is using SSH keys. We can use regular passwords as well, but using SSH keys is a bit more secure and can save you from having to type your password for every CVS operation. If you can send your SSH public key to firstname.lastname@example.org, we can install the key on the server for you and send you some basic instructions to connect to the server. If you need assistance creating SSH keys, also email us back at email@example.com and we'll follow up with you at that time. (If you would really prefer to just use a standard password, let us know that and we'll create one for you.) When receive the ssh key, install it into authorized_keys in .ssh example : ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAABIwAAAQEAtXNxiQeLVVHZZH ...... dude@theirlaptop make sure there are no carriage returns, it is all one line. change the Auth_keys file to owner=username and perm=600 change the .ssh to owner=username and perm=700 tell them to try and test connection: ssh firstname.lastname@example.org date this should give back the server date and time. if so then it is working, if not then you troubleshoot.
