Is it Possible to transfer the Git SSHKey from one system to another

I am very New to Git.
My client asket me to install git in my system and told me to pass the ssh key (id_rsa.pub ).I transfered the key and he registered, after that we were able to download the app.

Then we decided to move to Fedora 14 (Linux). We installed git again and we transferred the key again for registration in server to the client. But now the client mentioned we can use the same key.

  • what's the advantage of integrating GIT LFS with artifactory
  • `git push origin <branchname>` throws error `HTTP Basic: Access denied`
  • Advantages and drawbacks in committing built files in web develoment
  • Error on git push = ! master -> master (pre-receive hook declined)
  • Silence git (no errors, no output, don't say a word)
  • git push does not respond
  • Is it possible to use the same key?

    I tried the below steps: (Once git got installed in Fedora.)

    1. ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "your_email@youremail.com" (same email id used as on Windows OS)
    2. Replaced all the 3 files created with the copy of the 3 files (id_rsa, id_rsa.pub and known_hosts from Windows install earlier)
    3. Tried git clone git@git.xyz.com:x2.git

    But no luck.

    When i try:

    git clone git@git.xyz.com:x2.git
    Cloning into x2...
    ssh: connect to host git.xyz.com port 22: connection timed out
    fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly.
    

    Can somebody help me in understanding and resolving this issue?
    Is there some other problem locking access?

    Thanks in advance.

    The ssh private key is not tied to a machine and you can just copy it from one machine to another and should be able to ssh ( and hence use git) to the server that has your public key. You do not have to recreate the keys and replace with the copies etc, but even what you have done is fine from the keys point of view.

    The error you are getting is ssh: connect to host git.xyz.com port 22: connection timed out fatal which seems to suggest that the box doesn’t have access to the server.

    As mentioned @manojlds, you can copy ssh keys. I have personally done that across development machines.

    The connection time seems to be due to the ssh-daemon not running. To ensure you can connect to the machine please run the following diagnostics

    ps -ef | grep sshd
    

    You should get

    root       726     1  0 08:07 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/sshd -D
    

    If sshd is running, double check the permissions on your keys and forcibly set to 0700.

    cd .ssh
    chmod -R 0700 *     #Read only to the user only
    

    Try running ssh -v <user>@<host>, if you get

    ssh -v 192.168.0.150
    OpenSSH_5.8p1 Debian-1ubuntu3, OpenSSL 0.9.8o 01 Jun 2010
    debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config
    debug1: Applying options for *

    ssh: connect to host 192.168.0.150 port 22: Connection refused
    

    then there is an issue with your sshdaemon, because the initial handshake has failed. A successful communication looks like:
