I would like to do ssh from machine "ub0" to another machine "ub1" without using passwords. I setup using nfs on "ub0" but still I am asked to insert a password.

Here is my scenario:

  • machine ub0 and ub1 have the same user "mpiu", with same pwd, same userid, and same group id
  • the 2 servers are sharing a folder that is the HOME directory for "mpiu"
  • I did a chmod 700 on the .ssh
  • I created a key using ssh-keygene -t dsa
  • I did "cat id_dsa.pub >> authorized_keys". On this last file I tried also chmod 600 and chmod 640
  • off course I can guarantee that on machine ub1 the user "shared_user" can see the same fodler that wes mounted with no problem.

Below the content of my .ssh folder

authorized_keys
id_dsa
id_dsa.pub
known_hosts

After all of this calling wathever function "ssh ub1 hostname" I am requested my password. Do you know what I can try?

I also UNcommented in the ssh_config file for both machines this line

IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_dsa

I also tried

ssh -i $HOME/.ssh/id_dsa mpiu@ub1

Below the ssh -vv

Your ssh client is trying password authentication before public key authentication.

Check your ~/.ssh/config and /etc/ssh/ssh_config files for a PreferredAuthentications entry.

I see similar behavior if I add the following entry to my ~/.ssh/config file:

PreferredAuthentications password,publickey

If you have something like that in either of the aforementioned files, comment it out.
