SSH login without password not working


Hello out there...
This is my first threat here, so if i mess up with some rules, please be gentle...smile
I have to NAS devices...and i have root access to both of them.
And i want to do a rsync between them.
The Rsync command is clear...but i always get prompted for pass phrase...which makes it impossible to automate that via cron job
I already created the rsa key...and tried to get it into the authorized keys on the other NAS, but even after that...still pass phrase...
Tried this here:
"cat /root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh root@destinationip 'cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys'

And get:
"The authenticity of host 'dest ip (destip)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is 35:60:b9:53:a4:08:fb:1a:be:7a:7d:b5:4f:ee:cc:2c.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Warning: Permanently added 'destip' (RSA) to the list of known hosts.
root@destip's password:

Can someone give me a hint where the culprit could be?

Thx in advance

Improper permissions are usually the cause of this:
Code:
chmod 750 ~
chmod 700 ~/.ssh
chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
On the destination machine

Now it's asking for the passphrase, not the password. You need to leave the passphrase prompt blank when you're creating the key.

You'll need to make a new key, this time just keep pressing enter through all of the prompts, then copy it over to the destination again.

Glad you got it sorted! SSH keys aren't too bad to set up and get going once you know the gotchas, the only issue is the complete and utter lack of any error logging, even with verbosity turned up. You have to know what the problem is, because for security reasons SSH is not going to tell you...a little annoying.
