This is a question regarding the OpenSSH client on Linux, MacOSX and FreeBSD.
Normally, I log into systems using my SSH key.
Occasionally, I want my SSH client to ignore my SSH key and use a password instead. If I 'ssh hostname', my client prompts me for the Passphrase to my SSH key which is an annoyance. Instead, I want the client to simply ignore my SSH key, so that the server will ask me for my password instead.
I tried the following, but I am still prompted for the passphrase to my SSH key. After this, I am prompted for my password.
ssh -o PreferredAuthentications=password host.example.org
I want to do this on the client side, without any modification of the remote host.
