Re: [ProgSoc] ssh on nfs'd /home
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
| ] I've got a file server which serves out /home to a couple of
| ] workstations. now, from these workstations, I want to be able to ssh to
| ] the file server from time to time, without a password. So I would use
| ] ssh-keygen and ssh-copy-id to generate and transfer the key across. But
| ] this doesn't seem to work, my guess being coz ~/.ssh is one and the
| ] same on both machines. Is there any way to get around this apart from
| ] using /etc/hosts.equiv ?
| hosts.equiv should be avoided, for any number of reasons.
That's what I figured. but thought that on the odd occasion where a
number of hosts are `equivalent', it may be a good solution.
| Is this ssh1 or 2 ? (You didn't say.)
The server is running debian/potato (OpenSSH version 1.2.3-9.4), while
the clients are running woody (OpenSSH version 3.0.2p1-9).
| What do you want to access the server for? (Can it be done by
| sharing out yet another directory on the server, with either
| nfs or samba (you didn't say).)
mostly admin kinda stuff, sometimes to start big downloads or long
tasks. I need an actual shell.
| Have you tried replicating the user's public key in the user's
| authorized_hosts file, and see what happens?
That works for ssh'ing to the server (Which is pretty much what I want).
~ Why the hell didn't I think of that? But I can't ssh from the server
back to any of the workstations. It tells me:
$ ssh foo
Disconnecting: Bad packet length 1349676916.
Would this be b/c of different protocol versions?
