hi everyone, i have set two machines (B&C Fedora 12) to rsync to one machine (A fedora 11) which acts as the backup. The two machines have restricted ports except for SSH which is not on a default port though. they all reside on the same local network and I used ssh keys to allow the sync to take place. The keys only work if the backup machine is getting to the two other machines (A--> B&C good) but those machines still prompt for a password to get to A (B&C -->A bad). The key transfer and setup procedure is set to run on root and is exactly the same procedure carried out on all machines.
From comp B
1) ssh-keygen -b 1024 -t rsa -f /home/Leo/.ssh/id_rsa
2) scp /home/leo/.ssh/id_rsa.pub email@example.com.AA:/home/leo/.ssh
3) rsync -r -e ssh /Backup firstname.lastname@example.org.AA
4) password prompt (Not supposed to happen right?)
I have done the same procedure on A and it works if its backing up to B although the point here is B to backup to A with NO PASSWORD prompt because this has to go into a cronjob Directory permissions are set to leo and root, anyhelp?
