SSH RSA Public Key Authentication for SFTP connectivity

Hi,
I have generated the RSA keys through ftptest user account on HP-UX 11i V1 system. Now i have copied that RSA public key i.e. id_rsa.pub to other HP-UX 11i V1 system. And i have copied the content of id_rsa.pub to /.ssh/known_hosts file.
And then i have login as ftptest user account and tried connecting the other HP-UX server on which i have copied the id_rsa.pub key through SFTP but it is asking me for the password. If i key in the password i am able to SFTP. But i want it should not ask me the password please let me know where i have to make the changes so SFTP will work without password i.e. through SSH RSA Public Key Authentication.

Thanks,
Narendra

Hi Narendra,

Do this on remote host

login as ftptest to remote system
cat id_rsa.pub >> $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys
chmod 600 $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys

Note :id_rsa.pub should be generated on the source machine from which u are trying to login without password
