Tested on:Raspberry Pi 2; Raspberry Pi B+; Raspbian pre Jessie; Raspbian Jessie
Prerequisites:Raspberry Pi with Raspbian Jessie and internet connection (see steps 1-7 in the Introduction)

Passwordfree login: Exchange SSH keys

While programming the Raspberry Pi in the terminal, scp and ssh operations can become a nuisance when the password has to be typed in every time. Exchanging ssh keys allows password free ssh access and spares plenty of time.

Open a console on your host computer and type

Entering a passphrase is not necessary.

The ip address of the RasPi can be obtained like explained in the headless setupheadless setup or with the Angry IP Scanner.
