I finally installed open ssh and I *think* my installation is ok (because I got a warning about an unexisting "/sshd/" user at the end of the make install, but sshd start perfectly).
Now what I'm suppose to do? I read a lot about ssh key but I think I forgot something. When I started sshd, no error (!!! wow finally
!!!). I have read something about "key that need to be generated" so I start ssh-keygen, saved my rsa key to my home dir (/root/.ssh/) then I tried to login into myself (ssh localhost)...
First time, I got something like :
Authenticity of host localhost (127.0.0.1) can't be established.
RSA key finger print is xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Are you sure you want to continue? (yes/no)
I answered yes, but I think this was the wrong answer
Now every time I (try to) login, no matter what password I enter, I get the msg "permission denied, please try again" but I'm not stupid enought to have forgot my root pass!
tell me if I'm wrong but look like sshd can't decrypt my password, or get a wrong pass from ssh (or maybe I missed a step?)
Can you help me ? I'm REALLY lost
