I have successfully created a key based auth for root user from my A machine to my B machine.
Now, I created a new user on B machine, the same as on A machine, let's call him
USER. I created a home dir for him on B machine
/home/USER and I want to create key based auth for him from machine A to B machine.
So, I ran on A machine
ssh-keygen -t rsa, accepted all paths, so
/home/USER/.ssh/id_rsaand with no phrases
ssh-copy-id -i /home/USER/.ssh/id_rsa.pub USER@BmachinesIP, entered password and got massage
Now try logging into the machine bla bla bla
So everything seems to be OK.
But when I tried to connect
ssh USER@BmachinesIP I was asked for a password.
I tried to see the log and ran
ssh -vvv USER@BmachinesIP and here is a part of output:
debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,password debug3: start over, passed a different list publickey,password debug3: preferred gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic,publickey,keyboard-interactive,password debug3: authmethod_lookup publickey debug3: remaining preferred: keyboard-interactive,password debug3: authmethod_is_enabled publickey debug1: Next authentication method: publickey debug1: Offering public key: /home/USER/.ssh/id_rsa debug3: send_pubkey_test debug2: we sent a publickey packet, wait for reply debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,password debug1: Trying private key: /home/USER/.ssh/id_dsa debug3: no such identity: /home/USER/.ssh/id_dsa debug2: we did not send a packet, disable method debug3: authmethod_lookup password debug3: remaining preferred: ,password debug3: authmethod_is_enabled password debug1: Next authentication method: password USER@BmachinesIP's password:
So, can anyone tell me what I've done wrong or what I should change? Maybe the issue is in the permissions, here they are:
on A machine:
drwx------ 2 USER USER SIZE DATE TIME .ssh -rw------- 1 USER USER 1675 2011-10-31 14:36 id_rsa -rw-r--r-- 1 USER USER 413 2011-10-31 14:36 id_rsa.pub
and on B machine:
drwx------ 2 USER defaultGroup SIZE DATE TIME .ssh -rw------- 1 USER defaultGroup SIZE DATE TIME authorized_keys
