Thanks for such a prompt reply
but stop stop stop not so fast
the problems started when i installed the fedora 7 on the host 1.
So i have fedora 7 on host 1 and fedora 6 on host 2.
Im not proficient in security questions except for general information and instructions.
before instalation these two computers were having passwordless ssh connection.
so i can connect via ssh from host 2 (F6) to host 1 (f7)
but i cant connect from host 1 to host 2 : connection time out
so im not so smart i need very simple explanations
This record is the same, but i think i do something wrong with keys ?
first i generate the key with command
on both hosts i perform :
# service iptables stop to turn of firewalls
# service sshd start
then generate the key
# ssh -keygen -t dsa
when i do have the following:
scp file1.pub root@host1:/tmp/file1-host2.pub
cat file1 -file1.pub >> .ssh/authorized_keys
chmod 400 .ssh/authorized_keys
ssh -i file1 host1
am i right or?
