    You may search SUN's BigAdmin portal or Google for "authorized_keys".
    Some good ones:

    http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/features/articles/sec_shell_1.html
    http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/features/articles/sec_shell_2.html

    Most people would start SSH server in debug mode, "sshd -d", and also
    test ssh client connection using vervose mode, "ssh -v remotehost"

    Subject: Using public key pair to authenticate

     
    Hi,

    I am working with two Unix servers running AIX 5.2. One server is
    running "OpenSSH_3.6.1p2-CERT-patched, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL
    0x009060df" while the other is running "SSH Secure Shell 3.2.0".

    I created the key pair on the server with OpenSSH using "ssh-keygen". I
    named the output files as (identity & identity.pub). Then I copied the
    contents of "identity.pub" to the file named authorized_keys on the
    server with "SSH Secure Shell 3.2.0".

    When I try connecting to the remote server, I am asked to type in the
    password. Apparently the public key authentication method is not
    working.

    Can someone shed some light for me?

    Thanks.

    Peter
