ssh-agent

I used ‘ssh-add -l’ to list the loaded keys in the ssh-agent but I can’t seem to remove some of the unused ones. Is it possible?

This came through while I was on holiday with only a Windows Netbook.

From
man ssh-agent

 -D      Deletes all identities from the agent.

 -d      Instead of adding identities, removes identities from the agent.
         If ssh-add has been run without arguments, the keys for the
         default identities will be removed.  Otherwise, the argument list
         will be interpreted as a list of paths to public key files and
         matching keys will be removed from the agent.  If no public key
         is found at a given path, ssh-add will append .pub and retry.

Thanks David,

Shortly after I posted this I figured it out. Everything has been zoomin’ along quite nicely.
