I can no longer use public keys on one account I have on a remote system. It worked fine for a while, but it doesn't seem to now(I still have to input my password each time I login). It started one day when I had several terminals remotely logged into my account(scp and ssh) from the same computer (also I remember I changed the permissions on my home directory that day, and at one point really messed them up, I feel that may have something to do with it).
when I run ssh -v:
debug1: Connection established. debug1: identity file /Users/bobak/.ssh/identity type -1 debug1: identity file /Users/bobak/.ssh/id_rsa type 1 debug1: identity file /Users/bobak/.ssh/id_dsa type -1 debug1: Remote protocol version 2.0, remote software version OpenSSH_4.3 debug1: match: OpenSSH_4.3 pat OpenSSH_4* debug1: Enabling compatibility mode for protocol 2.0 debug1: Local version string SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.2 debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT sent debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT received debug1: kex: server->client aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: kex: client->server aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REQUEST(1024<1024<8192) sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_GROUP debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_INIT sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REPLY debug1: Host 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx' is known and matches the RSA host key. debug1: Found key in /Users/bobak/.ssh/known_hosts:4 debug1: ssh_rsa_verify: signature correct debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS received debug1: SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_REQUEST sent debug1: SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_ACCEPT received debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password debug1: Next authentication method: publickey debug1: Trying private key: /Users/bobak/.ssh/identity debug1: Offering public key: /Users/bobak/.ssh/id_rsa debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password debug1: Trying private key: /Users/bobak/.ssh/id_dsa debug1: Next authentication method: password
any ideas as to what happened? There are other accounts on the computer which still work with RSA keys, but just not mine. I have tried to recreate the key, I have even gone as far as deleting my authorized keys file and remaking it, as well as trying from different computers.
