    Question Using scp without user name and password

    Hello friends,

    Is there any way to use the scp command to transfer files from one system to another without using username and password.

    I did ssh key sharing.....So i am able to do scp without entering password...............

    Can any one tell me how to use scp without entering even user name

    Do you mean you can do 'ssh without entering password...'?

    If so, take a look at the manpage for scp (do 'man scp' at the command line). There is an option to tell it to use ssh using your standard config, and another option to tell it to use a particular ssh config file.
