Ok, this should be easy:
I want to log in from CLIENT to SERVER without being
asked for a password.
On CLIENT, I run:
ssh-keygen -t dsa -b 2048
as user "test"
and I do not enter a password. Then I copy the .pub
portion of that key over to SERVER and save it as
/usr/home/jerkoff/.ssh/authorized_keys2 ... note that
I save it as authorized_keys2, because it is a dsa key
then I chmod 0600 authorized_keys2 ...
So now I should be able to go to CLIENT and:
ssh jerkoff at SERVER
and log in with no password, right ? Wrong. I get:
% ssh jerkoff at server
Response: (I hit enter)
jerkoff at server's password: (I hit enter)
Permission denied, please try again.
So ... what am I doing wrong ?
