I've been trying to set up Git over SSH and have followed the guides I've seen to the letter. I use ssh-keygen to create a key set, log into the remote host and append the public key to .ssh/authorized_users using
cat id_rsa.pub >> .ssh/authorized_keys. When I try to log in, I still get prompted for the user's (git user) password.
I also found a tutorial that showed how to use putty's keygen tool and followed that. Again, nothing. No variation of any tutorial I've found seems to get sshd on the remote host to allow me to log in with the generated key.
Is there any way to manually control this? I'm stuck on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 for now.
