Ok so I've watched episodes 1108 through 1120 on Hak5 umpteen times. I took notes and got the keys generated and where they need to be.
I have pasted the public key in the public key box for my user in freenas 8. it starts with "ssh-rsa " and ends with my user@ my clientmachines name. Is this right?
On the server in .ssh I have the public key in the authorized_keys. It also begins and ends as stated above. again is this right?
On my client machine in .ssh I have my private key the .pub key and Known_hosts. Known_hosts has quite the string of data in one line.
I believe it is a hashed version of User@host.domain
then it says= ssh-rsa and the string of data/the key and nothing after that.
When I tried to ssh into the nas I got the fingerprint and checked it as good and it was permantly added to the known_hosts file.
Now when I try to ssh in I am always asked for my password. What did I do Wrong?
Thanks to all who look and even more so to those who help. +1
