Do the following to verify your installation:
Double-click the Git Bash icon to start a terminal session. Enter the following command to verify the SSH client is available:
$ ssh -v
If you have ssh installed, go to the next step. List the contents of your ~/.ssh directory.
$ ls -a ~/.ssh
If you have not used SSH on Bash you might see something like this:
rishi@rishi-PC ~ $ ls -a ~/.ssh ls: /c/Users/rishi/.ssh: No such file or directory
If you have a default identity already, you'll see two id_* files:
rishi@rishi-PC ~ $ ls -a ~/.ssh . .. id_rsa id_rsa.pub
Enter ssh-keygen at the command line. The command prompts you for a file to save the key in:
ssh-keygen ssh-agent /bin/bash ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa ssh-add -l
In your terminal window, cat the contents of the public key file.
