  2. Please specify with some examples how each deployers are working?
  3. where should i place the private key to make it useful for teamcity to connect to any servers and deploy the artifacts to that server?

Default private key uses ~/.ssh/id_rsa key for auth. This file is supposed to be located at Build Agent machine.

Recently, a support for SSH-Agent auth was implemented by @webner . This feature will help you to make a key useful for connecting to any servers. It can be succefully combined with TeamCity ssh key management and ssh-agent build

Follow these steps:

  1. Upload your key to TeamCity server
  2. Set up an ssh-agent build feature for your build
  3. Choose ssh-agent auth. type in ssh deployer settings.
