hi ,

sorry that I am a newbie to fedora FC5, I used to be in Solaris environment. i could not configure correctly for public key ssh login as I used to do in Solaris.

my step:

1) cat my public key and put in my $fedora_user/.ssh/authorized_keys

2) configure fedora's /etc/ssh/sshd_config, uncomment the following 2 lines

PubkeyAuthentication yes
AuthorizedKeysFile      .ssh/authorized_keys

3) restart sshd with /sbin/service sshd restart  or restart fedora ...

However, ssh login still prompts me for password.....

did i miss anything ? pls help!!


Try using the -v flag on the ssh command. This outputs some verbose info and may indicate where the problem is.

I presume the private key on the client matches the public key you have installed on the server?
