Ssh Forwarding in Vagrant and Private Github Repository

It is how to checkout git private repository from within a VM without leaving a key in the VM

First in host OS (Mac OSX in my case), run

ssd-add /path/to/githubkey

In the .ssh/config, add these lines:

    Host           github
    HostName       github.com
    IdentityFile   /path/to/githubkey

Then enable port forwarding in vagrant VM

Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
  config.ssh.forward_agent = true

After you have run vagrant up, you can test the connection in the VM by running

ssh -T git@github.com
