Do you means we can't disable the password request for using SSH-telnet ?

You can, but it requires you to generate an SSH key without a passphrase.

The server's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file must have the client's key you generate inside.

Once you have this setup, and you set your client to use the key you generated, you will never see a password.

Dear Michael,

For /etc/ssh/sshd_config ( SSH default config file ) :

# To disable tunneled clear text passwords, change to no here!
PermitEmptyPasswords yes
PasswordAuthentication yes

Then, the test result (without request enter user's password):
login as: bb
Last login: Sat Nov 22 14:22:37 2008 from
[bb edsvr ~]$

Now, it is ok...

Thank for your hints...
