How do I use the 1password ssh agent without installing the 1password gui?

I have a headless machine (VM) that I would like to use 1password ssh agent on (I've got the 1password-cli installed), but it doesn't appear to be possible to setup the ssh agent without the gui.

Any ideas?

    Hi @spott:

    Great question! As it currently stands, the 1Password SSH agent is only included with 1Password for Linux, and isn't part of 1Password CLI.

    With that said, if you access this virtual machine using SSH, it's possible to use SSH agent forwarding with the AgentForward SSH option. AgentForward can be set in your ~/.ssh/config file, or the -A flag can be used when running SSH: ssh -A [email protected].

    Let me know if that works for you, or if your situation isn't covered with agent forwarding.
