Can I set SSH directory different from $HOME/.ssh?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


Does any one have experience of using different directory other than
$HOME/.ssh, which is default location for public & private key? What I'm
currently doing is public key authentication on OpenSSH 3.4 & Red Hat
Linux 8.0.

We use AFS space for home directory, which means the $HOME is not local.
It seems that OpenSSH (version 3.4) doesn't like $HOME/.ssh not being
local HDD. Because I had pub. key authentication work with test account
whose $HOME is local, having local home should solve my problem.

Please let me have your valuable suggestions, tips, etc.
Thanks in advance.
