RE: SSH keygen and login problem



So you're trying to connect as root to the remote server? Is passwordless root ssh allowed?

hi

the .ssh is drwx------

i changed from 600 to 633 for authorized_keys but still asking for password

i checked before ssh-copy-id doesnt seem to be exit on Checkpoint SPLAT . i
login with my normal user then use the expert command (which is like su) i
use the root privilegs for key creating)

Hi,

Why cant u use "ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub
user@IPaddress"(Destination)..
It will automatically copy the public key to ur destination. And u are
creating the key as root or normal user ?

Thanks,

Might be worth checking the permissions on the .ssh directory and on
the authorized_keys file. That's bitten me before, and should be:

drwx------ .ssh
-rw-r--r-- authorized_keys

Hi,,

For my file transfer script i want to use scp without password. Here
is nearly what i have done:
1- I logined to my Checkpoint (which is Redhat based and the one who
is source) with my personal user and gave expert command to have
root permissons.
2. Changed directory to /root/.ssh and gave ssh-keygen -t dsa and
created the key pairs.
3 I copied yhe public key to my home folder at the remote server
like

scp ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub
myuser@remoteserver:/home/myuser.ssh/authorized_keys

4. Then i copied this authorized_keys to the /root/.ssh.
5 then tried to send a sample file from my Checkpoint box to remote
server with scp but it requested me to enter a password.

how can i fix this ? then ill adapt my scirpt to this regards.
