I've looked at like 5 different guides for no password ssh and they all say the same thing... and I've done this over and over and can't get it.
First I create my id_dsa:
Then I scp it over to the server machine, and append it to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
Now when I try to ssh, it asks me for the passphrase for ~/.ssh/id_dsa and logs me in without ever asking me for the ssh password also.
Now I want it to not ask me for the id_dsa password... guides are telling me to use ssh-agent, however:
bash-2.05b$ ssh-agent /usr1/gnychis/.ssh/id_dsa
/usr1/gnychis/.ssh/id_dsa: Permission denied
bash-2.05b$ ls -la /usr1/gnychis/.ssh/ | grep id_dsa
-rw------- 1 gnychis users 736 Feb 8 20:18 id_dsa
I can't figure this out, this is happening on *all* of my machines.
Any clues? I have root on the client machines, but not on the server machine.
