    I'm trying to ssh from one server to another. They are identical servers
    running Linux, and cobalt 550's. and the same version of ssh. I am currently
    using rsa keys (for ssh2). I have used the defaults, so the public file is
    id_rsa.pub. Now I want to ssh from server 2 to 1, so I have appended server
    1's public key on to server 2's authorized_keys file (I have also tried
    authorized_key2). The perms set for the authorized_keys(2) file was 600. And
    the key take one line. But when I try to ssh in it still prompts for a
    password. I have cut some of the dead weight out of the debug, I have spent
    over 6 hours (over the past two days) trying to get this to work.
    I have both of these connecting to another server (server 3) and it works
    fine (server 3 is running "OpenSSH_3.4p1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL
    0x0090605f").
    Where as these two servers (server 1 & 2) are ("OpenSSH_2.9p2, SSH
    protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090600f").

    Any help would be apprciated.
