Dump Backup With SCP

this is a custom shell script to run dump command for backup to remote server with the SCP Command with using a private openssh key! please note that you will need to setup private.key for your scp to use without using a password

NOTE: The above command copies the backup from local host to remote host to store your backup. This requires ssh without password (ssh keys) and doas without password which is a security concern

private.key NOTE: The Solution: When you get to the public key screen in creating your key pair in puttygen, copy the public key and paste it into a text file with the extension .pub. You will save you sysadmin hours of frustration reading posts like this
