Hi,

I am new to linux and I was trying out passwordless SSH to another
machine in the network.

I did the following steps :

1) did a ssh-keygen -t rsa
2) copied the content in is_rsa.pub and pasted it in
$HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys in the remote machine.

A) Look for spelling mistakes. For example, it is id_rsa.pub, not
is_rsa.pub. You may have made a similar error in typing authorized_keys for
example.
What are the permissions on .ssh and on authorized_keys?

Do ssh -vv remotehost
to see what it is trying.


it is still asking for password while logging in...

i did not give any passphrase while creating the key... is that a
problem??

Kindly help me out..

Madhu
