However, from time to time I will notice that the GIT cli is asking me for my SSH RSA passphrase more often than I’d like. Sometimes it even asks on every pull. That’s annoying.
It is possible, however, to only enter your passphrase once per session. Setting this up should be as simple as doing the following:
- Add the “bin/” folder of your GIT install to your $PATH. This will allow you to reference
ssh-agentin your powershell environment.
- From your Powershell environment run
- Now run
Excellent! That should be it. Now you should be able to push, pull all you want without having to insert your passphrase more than once per session.
