Howto setup smooth ssh access

Posted by Jacob von Eyben on 24th October 2008

Everytime I have a new machine or a new ssh access to setup I forgot how to configure the access so I don’t have to type the username each time (if I login with a different user).
At the same time I would like to use a private rsa key. So here goes a note to myself and other scatter brains :-)

Instead of always have to type username and password like this:

[jeyben@machine ~]$ ssh
Last login: Fri Oct 24 16:31:03 2008 from somewhere
[username@servername ~]$

I would like to just do the following:

[jeyben@machine ~]$ ssh ancientprogramming
Last login: Fri Oct 24 16:31:03 2008 from somewhere
[username@servername ~]$

Create and use a public/private key pair


$ ssh-keygen -t rsa
$ scp ~/.ssh/


$ cat ~/ >> .ssh/authorized_keys

Modify .ssh/config

Host ancientprogramming
  User <username>
  Port 22
  LocalForward 3307 localhost:3306 (setup a localforward for the default mysql port)

Fixedformat4j now supports primitive datatypes as well as innerclasses

Posted by Jacob von Eyben on 16th October 2008

Support for primitive datatypes is added to the latest 1.2.1 release of fixedformat4j. I would like to thank Marcos Lois Bermúdez for contributing with this extension. The latest release can be downloaded here.

The same 1.2.1 release also fixed the bug that made it impossible to use annotate and format static nested classes and inner classes

The complete changelist can be found on the project website.

In a few days the release should be available from ibiblio.

I encourage all users of fixedformat4j to contribute or create issues if they find a bug or would like new features to be added.
