Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 132897
PubkeyAuthentication in sshd_config appears to change a default
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:49 EST
Description of problem:
Manual page for sshd_config says:
Specifies whether public key authentication is allowed. The
default is yes.
Despite of that until I uncommented line 'PubkeyAuthentication yes'
and restarted sshd all my attempts to logon that way were rejected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Seems to work fine with FC3test2. Please re-open this bug
with more information if this doesn't work after an update to
the newest rpm packages.
Thanks a lot,
Florian La Roche
Seems indeed to work, no problems, with openssh-3.9p1-7. So either
this got fixed in the meantime or I messed up something and
misattributed the problem. I am afraid that I have no way to recheck.
OTOH it definitely started to work _then_ when I dropped and explicit
'yes' into my sshd_config. :-)
