Ssh-agent and ssh-add


Does anyone know how to make it so that I don't have to add my keys manually using ssh-add? Every time I log into my Ubuntu server box, I have to start the ssh-agent and then use ssh-add before my keys are available. Have I done something to mess up the default behavior of ssh? Let me know if there's information I can provide that would help answering this question.

Look at this thread on Why wont ssh agent save my unencrypted key for later use

It gives the parameters you need to use in bash to wake up ssh-agent on each login.
