     ssh-copy-id - copy public keys to a remote host

     ssh-copy-id [-lv] [-i keyfile] [-o option] [-p port] [user@]hostname

     The ssh-copy-id utility copies public keys to a remote host's
     ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file (creating the file and directory, if

     The following options are available:

     -i file
             Copy the public key contained in file.  This option can be
             specified multiple times and can be combined with the -l option.
             If a private key is specified and a public key is found then the
             public key will be used.

     -l      Copy the keys currently held by ssh-agent(1).  This is the
             default if the -i option was not specified.

     -o ssh-option
             Pass this option directly to ssh(1).  This option can be
             specified multiple times.

     -p port
             Connect to the specified port on the remote host instead of the

     -v      Pass -v to ssh(1).

     The remaining arguments are a list of remote hosts to connect to, each
     one optionally qualified by a user name.

     The ssh-copy-id utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

     To send a specific key to multiple hosts:
           $ ssh-copy-id -i /path/to/ [email protected] [email protected]
           [email protected]

     The ssh-copy-id utility was written by Eitan Adler <[email protected]>
     as a drop-in replacement for an existing utility included with OpenSSH.
