Re: using ssh without a password



Thanks that worked. I don't know why the person that wrote those instructions made special note that it was "authorized_keys2" and not just "authorized_keys"...

anyways, thanks again for the help

I am trying to figure out how to connect to another pc on my LAN via ssh without entering a password (I am trying to use it in a script). I google'd around a bit and found a page that gave some instructions, which I followed:

user morpheus$ ssh-keygen -t dsa -f ~/.ssh/id_dsa

when asked for the pass phrase, I left it empty.

user morpheus$ scp ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub root razor:/home/user/.ssh
user morpheus$ ssh root razor
root razor# cd ~user/.ssh
root razor# chown user id_dsa.pub
root razor# chgrp user id_dsa.pub
root razor# su user
user razor$ ls -l
-rw-r--r--    1 user  user    226 Nov  1 21:43 id_dsa.pub
-rw-r--r--    1 user  user    221 Nov  1 21:28 known_hosts
user razor$ mv id_dsa.pub authorized_keys2


try authorized_keys not keys2


user razor$ chmod 640 authorized_keys2
user razor$ logout
root razor# logout
user morpheus$ ssh razor
user razor's password:

its still asking for a password... any suggestions?
