I would like to activate ssh-agent automatically if I login 
via ssh.

My /etc/pam.d/sshd looks like:

# auth
auth  required     no_warn
auth  sufficient        no_warn no_fake_prompts
auth  requisite  no_warn allow_local
auth  required        no_warn try_first_pass
auth  optional         no_warn try_first_pass

# account
account  required
account  required

# session
session  optional
session  required

# password
password  required  no_warn try_first_pass

At ssh login I have to type in login password and password 
for my ssh-key as expected but no ssh-agent is started. Any 

best regards
