That reference seems to recommend no passphrase (bad idea for security)
and is a bit fuzzy on adding to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys - can copy the
first key but subsequently must append, e.g. "cat <public_key>
>>~/.ssh/authorized_keys".  Also doesn't mention ssh-agent and ssh-add
which allow the use of passwordless login with a passphrase-protected
key, nor cover port forwarding which seems to be relevant.  Might try:
