    What is "NCP2" there? or did you mean "ssh hostname NCP2"?

    Install sudo maybe?

    %unix breeze<nwkuser>87: sudo ssh hostname NCP2

    Or don't worry about the keys in root, and set up the nwkuser with it's
    own key, and authorize that key on all the machines that that user needs
    to reach.

    %unix breeze<nwkuser>87: ssh root@hostname NCP2
