I'm a postdoc doing research in high-energy particle physics. I also have a hobby interest in computer programming.

You can find me on Twitter, or check out my blog and personal website! Or you can email me at stack@ellipsix.net.

However, please don't contact me through any other channel about something that should be handled through this site. If you do, I'll probably just tell you to post it here.

comment How do I set up SSH so I don't have to type a password, and without using a public key?
Sorry I forgot to come back and provide feedback on this. After modifying /etc/hosts as suggested I get debug1: Unspecified GSS failure. Minor code may provide more information Generic error (see e-text). Nothing else in the output is relevant to the error.

Yeah, it would... I'll ask them about it, but for now hopefully your fix should settle things. I'll try it tomorrow.

This seems like it should be pretty close to ideal for me, but it doesn't seem to work - I was able to login with Kerberos successfully (no error messages), but I still get prompted for a password. Error messages from ssh -vv are similar to the trace I posted except I get debug1: Unspecified GSS failure. Minor code may provide more information\n Server not found in Kerberos database instead of the thing about the credential cache file not being found.

@Broam I can't imagine that I'd be the first one to ask, so presumably they have some reason for keeping it that way... I suppose it wouldn't hurt to try, though.

The master connection would reset when I shut the client down, though. So this isn't an ideal solution, but it would be a slight improvement over my current situation.

@grawity No /etc/krb5.keytab, but it does have /etc/krb5/krb5.keytab. I don't have access to the contents. The server name is sftp.pass.psu.edu (I don't think there's any harm in giving that name out) if it helps you explain the procedure.

comment Why don't you see binary code when you open a binary file with text editor?
@ZJR: No reason they shouldn't. Many hex editors do let you view file contents in binary. Programmers just don't generally find it as useful as the hexadecimal view, so you don't hear about it as much.

I haven't run fsck yet, because I need to unmount the filesystem first.

No luck, running with sudo fails the same way.

Silly me, I completely forgot to include that output ;-) but yes, that was what brought my attention to the problem in the first place.
