SSH use RSA server through Firewall


hello to all,

As a linux admin newbie I had a question I am hoping some one can help.. I have request to configure ssh on my Red Hat 8.0 to allow ssh from an outside address, and use the Windows RSA server for authentication. The person wanting the connection has an SecureID card with a changing key...

I have set up the NAT on the FW and the rule to allow ssh from remote machine to my box. However I do not understand how to configure ssh on my box to authenticate to the RSA Sever? is that something I set up in the firewall? I looked at the sshd_conf file and have read some of the documentation but they do not make sense to me... It seems like they documentation is saying to create its own RSA keys locally isntead of specifying a server to contact for authentication...

I apologize for making this confusing, but I am confused myself. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions on how to make this work?

thanks
greg

I don't know. Never done SecurID. Maybe looking at http://www.joerg.cc/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?MySecurID-page or
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/libs/pam/modules.html under SecureID for clues is all I can offer.
