I am trying to get passwordless SSH authentication to work from a Windows 7 machine to local server.
Windows machine: My login name in this machine is
MY_LOGIN_NAME. I am using Cygwin as the command line.
CentOS 5.5 Server: I have admin privileges on this server; logged in as
Here is what I have done so far:
MY_LOGIN_NAMEon the Windows machine, I
ssh-config-usered from the Cygwin command line. This created (at least) RSA public and private keys in
I copied the public key over to the server to the
scp id-rsa.pub email@example.com:.ssh/id-rsa.pub
Then I tried to log into the server using
ssh -i id_rsa firstname.lastname@example.org
But it still asks me for my password. What am I missing?
