#42861 new enhancement

Guide for replacing system ssh with MacPorts ssh

Port: ssh

Description

There are a variety of guides about this scattered around the net.

All (I've found so far) have various problems.

Let me know if there is a "MacPorts Guide" or ticket which covers the suggested way to completely circumvent the popup window AskPass nonsense + running the undocumented /usr/bin/ssh-agent -l command.

Thanks.

/opt/local/bin/ssh seems to restart /usr/bin/ssh-agent every time I run ssh.

So maybe the real question here is this...

Let me know how to make MacPorts ssh stop running /usr/bin/ssh-agent -l every time ssh runs.

Thanks.

Looks like /System/Library/LaunchAgents/org.openbsd.ssh-agent.plist must somehow be hacked for this.

Replying to david@…:

Perhaps unchecking "Apple Menu -> System Preferences -> Sharing -> Remote Login" is all that is needed.

Curious idea.

This is already unchecked in my environment.

Thanks for the tip though. I'll have to figure out exactly what this option does.
