    Hi Randy,

    Several people suggested checking the permissions to
    the /home/user/.ssh directory and the
    /home/user/.ssh/authorized_keys file. (Thanks if your
    reading this)

    As suggested I set the permissions for the .ssh
    directory to 700 and set the permissions for the
    authorized_keys file to 600 and made sure the owner
    and group were set to my username for both and it
    fixed the problem I was having.

    My problem was that I was creating the .ssh directory
    myself and not letting ssh-keygen do the work so the
    permissions were wrong there and I hadn't set the
    correct permissions for the authorized_keys file.

    I've got it running from the crontab right now and
    it's been working great.

    I hope this solves your problem as well.

    Dusty
