Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive)

hi

I cannot login into ssh due to the following error:

storage> ssh localhost
Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive).


my system:

I tried to remove /root/.ssh/known_hosts
and regenerate all keys:

ssh-keygen -t rsa1 -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_key -N ''
ssh-keygen -t rsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key -N ''
ssh-keygen -t dsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key -N ''

but still doesn't work !

knows someone howto solve this problem ?

Re: Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive)

This is because your user doesn't have the their own keys shared in the '~/.ssh/authorized_keys' file.

If you read through your config, you'll see that you've got "PasswordAuthentication no".

This means, no matter what, you won't be asked for a password.

It has the side effect of meaning you have to have pre-shared authorized keys.

thanks, but howto create pre-shared authorized keys ?

Re: Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive)

You have to copy the public key to the http://macnugget.org/projects/publickeys/ in the remote host, please see:

Re: Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive)

I've installed openssh again:

# ipkg install openssh

and now it seems to work.

thanks anyway.
