SSH - known_hosts file. User defined.

Hello.

command : ssh 192.168.1.10

By default ssh client trying to find record with key for host 192.168.1.10 in file ~/.ssh/known_hosts.
How i can specify another path for file with key?

Something like this:

ssh 192.168.1.10 -known_hosts_path=/etc/known_hosts

Is it possible?

Its an option..

You can specify on command line

ssh -o "UserKnownHostsFile=/path/to/new/file" <system name/ip>

of create a file in the users ~/.ssh directory named ssh_config and put the "UserKnownHostsFile=/path/to/new/file" in that file.

Hi,

the default for the global known hosts file is /etc/ssh/ssh_known_hosts anyway.

To change that path you can try

ssh -o GlobalKnownHostsFile=/etc/known_hosts 192.168.1.10
