# we must make sure the permissions to files and folders are correct
$ chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys 
$ chmod 700 ~/.ssh/

# copy the public key contents from LOCAL MACHINE to REMOTE MACHINE
$ ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub robbi@172.217.24.174 -p2222
/usr/bin/ssh-copy-id: INFO: Source of key(s) to be installed: "~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub"
/usr/bin/ssh-copy-id: INFO: attempting to log in with the new key(s), to filter out any that are already installed
/usr/bin/ssh-copy-id: INFO: 1 key(s) remain to be installed -- if you are prompted now it is to install the new keys

Number of key(s) added: 1

Now try logging into the machine, with:   "ssh -p '2222' 'robbi@172.217.24.174'"
and check to make sure that only the key(s) you wanted were added.

# try to ssh into remote machine
$ ssh robbi@172.217.24.174 -p 2222
