Hello Everyone,

     I'm in a bit of a pickle here.  Does anyone know if there's a way to c=
opy over a ssh key to a server which you only have sftp access to?  It's a =
third party setup, I want to setup my users so that they don't need to put =
in a password every time they need to sftp something over.  The thing is, t=
hat they only have sftp access with no ssh, so there's no shell access and =
no way to create an authorized key file.

Thanks in advance for your help,

SSH keys are configured per user on the server by editing a
configuration file (.ssh/authorized_keys for OpenSSH, other names for
other servers). If your users' SFTP access includes that directory,
they can already copy an appropriate version of that file on to the
server. If it doesn't, make it do so!
