I've tried to setup a password-less ssh b/w
A as well.
Generated the public and private key using
ssh-keygen -trsa on both the machines.
ssh-copy-id utility to copy the public-keys from
B as well as
The passwordless ssh works from
I've checked the permissions of the ~/ssh/ folder and seems to be normal.
A's .ssh folder permissions:

B's .ssh folder permissions:
-rw------- 1 root root 884 2011-07-07 13:15 known_hosts -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 396 2011-07-27 00:15 id_rsa.pub -rw------- 1 root root 1675 2011-07-27 00:15 id_rsa -rw------- 1 root root 2545 2011-07-27 00:36 authorized_keys drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 2011-07-06 19:44 .. drwx------ 2 root root 4096 2011-07-27 00:15 .
A is an ubuntu 10.04 (OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu4, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009)
B is a debian machine (OpenSSH_5.1p1 Debian-5, OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007)

Which essentially means it's not authenticating using the file
I ran the
ssh-add command in both the machines as well.

I'm running out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.
