Re: SSHkey

HI

 

First create the key (unless already did) with "ssh-keygen -t rsa"

then copy the key to the remote station with
"ssh-copy-id user@machine"


replace the user/machine with the actual username and machine name.
If still doesn't work - check the file /etc/ssh/sshd_config


Pay attention to entries like:
PubkeyAuthentication
PermitRootLogin
all should be set to yes.

 

Thanks
