I am trying to setup an automated connection to the server so that I can use
it with WinCVS. The user that I am trying to connect as is NOT root.
Client side (Win XP (with SP2))
C1. Tried to run Putty (or plink) with password authentication and that
C2. Generated the public and private keys (SSH-2 RSA) using puttygen, and
copied the public key to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys for the user account that I
am logging into.
C3. Loaded the private key with passphrase in Paegent...and it is running.
C4. Trying to connect with Putty
Session.Hostname: <value>, Session.Protocol? <ssh>
Connection.Data.Auto-login username: <value>, Connection.SSH.Preffered
SSH..: 2 only
Connection.SSH.Auth.Allow agent...: true
Server (Fedora Core 4) - I have root access on this box
S1. sshd is running
S2. /etc/ssh/sshd_config has the following
PasswordAuthentication no (when I change to yes and re-start the
daemon, I can log in as mentioned in C1)
ListenAddress IP for server (it only has one n/w card but since FC4 has
the IPv6 binding this helps)
UsePAM yes (I tried no...that did not help)
=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~= PuTTY log 2005.07.12 17:46:46
Using username "<user name I entered>".
No supported authentication methods left to try!
This message is in the /var/log/messages file
Jul 12 18:46:25 localhost sshd[...] Connection from a.b.c.d port 1582
Every time I try to connect to it, that number changes by 1.
My question is, how can I get the connection to work?
