I've used authorized_keys for years now and have never had a problem with it on multiple platforms.
I recently installed copssh on win3k and love it to death except I can't get it the authorized keys to work.
I added the same authorize_keys file that i use throughout all the servers and still get prompted for a password. I've chmod 777 to it and all.
I noticed that the sshd_config had the authorized_keys commented out
so i turned on
its still not working...
Is there something else I have to do?
You are by far my greatest hero~!!!!! i'd buy you a beer if you lived here.
I wanted to change my homedir to /cygdrive/d/ in the passwd.authorized_keys doesn't work after doing so.
I've copied the .ssh over to it and it didn't work
I also went through and set the directory permissions and ownership just as the activateuser script does.
Is there something I would have to do to have an alternate home directory?
Well, this is a little bit more complicated. I suggest to make a shortcut/symbolic link from your original directory to /cygdrive/d.
