I'm having some trouble getting SSH working in such a way that it doesn't prompt for a password. I need to get this working for backup and replication purposes via rsync. To date, I've been following the instructions provided in this
article, and it's always worked ok. This time however, it's not. Or, I should say it's not working for my user, but it does work for root. WTH?
So, I follow those instructions, verify everything is set up and use the root user, and getting the verbose output shows this:
debug2: we sent publickey packet, wait for reply
debug1: server accepts key: .....
Now, doing the exact
same thing logged in as a normal user, when I try to SSH with verbose output, I get to the same point and get this:
debug2: we sent a publickey packet, wait for reply
debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,password,keyboard-interactive
debug2: we did not send a packet, disable method
debug1: Next authentication method: keyboard-interactive
And then it proceeds to prompt me for a password.
I'm stuck here and don't know what else to try. I've gone through all the troubleshooting, I've verified that the public key matches the authorized_keys file on the server.. it should work, it just isn't!
These are both FC2 machines with the same user/password set up. Any ideas?
