configer ssh to trust a user to another host.

ssh version: ssh: SSH Secure Shell Tru64 UNIX 3.2.0
uname -a OSF1 tranum.tdk.dk V5.1 2650 alpha

Hi! im working a little problem trying to trust a user from this tru64 server to a linux enterprise with openSSH.

I want to be able to send files from my tru64 as an specific user with scp without specifying my passwd.
I can generate public-key files and place that key on my linux with other types of oprstin msystem, eks. ux,sun,aix but i cannot get it to work with tru64. Can you help me

Re: configer ssh to trust a user to another host.

This has been discussed in this forum.....

Try this from Tru64,
-- Generate the dsa key pair, enter null passphrase when prompted.
# ssh-keygen -t dsa

--- Copy the created public key to the linux server,
# scp ~/.ssh2/id_dsa_2048_a.pub linuxserver:.ssh/

--- Create identification file in the .ssh2 directory as follows with your key file name,
# echo "IdKey id_dsa_2048_a" >> ~/.ssh2/identification

And from Linux side,
--- Import the SSH2 style public key to openSSH format,
# ssh-keygen -i -f id_dsa_2048_a >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2

--- Change the permission of the file,
# chmod 600 ~/.ssh2/authorized_keys2

This shoud work without pwd from tru64

This is not as helpful as a transcript of
what you did and what happened then.

I don't run Linux, but ...

"ssh -v" can be informative.

You may not wish to create a new set of keys
for the Tru64 system, but if the file
formats are different, you might learn
something by creating key files on Tru64 and
then comparing those files with your existing
(Linux) key files.

I can get back and forth between my Tru64
system and a Solaris 10 (SunOS 5.10) system.

Hi,

I am agreed with Archunan. Along with this you have to set permission for the home directory of that user to 750.
