hi there, i have problem with using scp between two FreeBSD machines these are specifications for both servers

Server #1 :

FreeBSD 4.10-RELEASE
OpenSSH_3.5p1 FreeBSD-20030924, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090704f

this is the baclup server

Server #2 :

FreeBSD 4.6-RELEASE
OpenSSH_2.9 FreeBSD localisations 20020307, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090601f

this is the webserver i want to write script to backup the files for websites to the backup server by using cron tab to automatically so it should not asked about the password when using scp but i tried many things to create a DSA key to use key authentications instead of passwrod authontication so please if any one can help me with step by step manual to do that

thanks in advance
Khaled Hussein
