Can I use other directory than $HOME/.ssh?

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


I'm trying to use public key authentication on OpenSSH3.4, RedHat Linux
8.0. It seems that my problem is the home directory not being local.
It's on AFS space. I can change my home directory to local directory but
that's the last thing I want to do.

Does any one have experience of changing default SSH directory, the
default value of which is $HOME/.ssh. I tried symbolic link from
$HOME/.ssh to local HDD but that didn't work. Because I had public key
authentication work with test account whose home directory is local, I
believe having local home should solve my problem.

Thanks in advance.
