Description Marco Colombo 2001-03-07 14:31:41 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-3 i686)

ssh seems not to forward the connection to the ssh-agent. Since I'm using
DSA keys and protocol 2 I wonder if this is related to the forwarding
problem in #20572.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
mypc$ ssh -A hostA		(pubkey auth works, no password requested)
mypc$ ssh -A hostB		(works)

once I'm on hostA, I try
hostA$ rsh hostB		(prompts for remote user's password)

This feature has been added in OpenSSH 2.5.1p1, in rawhide.
