Yes, generate yourself a private/public key pair using "ssh-keygen"
and use cut & paste to copy the public key (in a local file named
identity.pub) to the file
on shell1.sourceforge.net (this is a Linux box, login and password
are the same as your CVS ones).
You should now be able to login to shell1.sourceforge.net just by
ssh -l beman_dawes shell1.sourceforge.net
without giving your password. If this works, scp without password works
