Subject: Using public key pair to authenticate
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".

named the output files as (identity & identity.pub). Then I copied the

Can someone shed some light for me?
