Is it possible to run ssh as root but use another users
login? For example:
root# ssh user@hostname
I'm running OpenSSH_3.9p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7a Feb 19 2003 on RH Fedora Core3
to OpenSSH_3.6.1p1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x009060af
I've created the rsa keys as the user on the system I'm sshing
from and moved the key to the remote system in the user's account
.ssh/authorized_keys file but I still get propmpted for a password.
The reason I ask is I'm trying to do an rsync pull as root
but use a differnt user so that the directory heiarchy is
created on the local system as root.
