Like most sysadmins I use openssh all the time. I have about a dozen ssh keys, I like to have a different ssh key for each host. However this causes a problem when I am connecting to a host for the first time, and all I have is a password. I want to just connect to the host using a password, no ssh key in this case. However the ssh client will offer all the public keys in my
~/.ssh/ (I know this from looking at the output of
ssh -v). Since I have so many, I will get disconnected for too many authentication failures.
Is there some way to tell my ssh client to not offer all the ssh keys?
