I cannot ssh anything I was able to. After a little digging I found out that it's not reading ssh config from my home directory.
$ ssh -xvvv server OpenSSH_6.2p2, OSSLShim 0.9.8r 8 Dec 2011 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh_config (...)
When on an identical computer of a friend, where everything works it looks like this:
$ ssh -xvvv server OpenSSH_6.2p2, OSSLShim 0.9.8r 8 Dec 2011 debug1: Reading configuration data /Users/kuba/.ssh/config (...)
It worked earlier and I am not aware of anything I could have done to cause this problem. How could this happen, and how to fix it?
In documentation link pointed by tike it states that
Because of the potential for abuse, this file must have strict permissions: read/write for the user, and not accessible by others.
My permissions are:
$ ls -la ~/.ssh total 80 drwx------+ 42 kuba 1029 1428 Jul 1 16:33 .. -rwx------ 1 kuba 1029 1528 May 15 13:07 config (...)
I think the problem might be with a confusion about home directory. When I force the local config file it starts to work, and then suddenly starts reading from
$ ssh -xvvvF ~/.ssh/config server OpenSSH_6.2p2, OSSLShim 0.9.8r 8 Dec 2011 debug1: Reading configuration data /Users/kuba/.ssh/config debug1: /Users/kuba/.ssh/config line 1: Applying options for * debug1: /Users/kuba/.ssh/config line 39: Applying options for bio debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0 debug1: Connecting to XXXX [YYYY.YYY.YYY.YYY] port 22. debug1: Connection established. debug1: identity file /nas/kuba/.ssh/id_dsa type -1 ^^^^^^^^^^
But my home dir seems to be set ok:
$ cd ~; pwd /Users/kuba $ echo $HOME /Users/kuba
