Unable to use SSH password-less logins
 
I am trying to ssh from my Windows/Cygwin xterm window into my CentOS52
servers w/o using passwords but my keys seem like they're being ignored. I
created the key in cygwin using:


$ ssh-keygen -t dsa -f id_dsa

And copied id_dsa.pub over to centos:~/.ssh/authorized_keys

Ideas?

tia,

- Joe

Check your permissions on ~/.ssh and ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on the
CentOS server, they should be 700 and 600, respectively. See here:
