Ubuntu Servers :: Can't Get Passwordless Ssh To Work

Feb 3, 2010

I followed the steps here: [URL]

It works fine, except every time I try to do something that requires authentication of the key, I have to type in the password in a prompt that looks like this:

$ git pull
Enter passphrase for key '/home/<user>/.ssh/id_rsa':
remote: Counting objects: 16, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (9/9), done.
remote: Total 9 (delta 7), reused 0 (delta 0)

This is very annoying. How can I have it so I don't have to enter my password each time?

On my local machine I followed the same instructions and don't have to enter the password every time...

Ubuntu :: Setup Passwordless Ssh/scp For Some Servers On A LAN?

Feb 9, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 (OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu3, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009) I am trying to setup passwordless ssh/scp for some servers on a LAN I am running the following commands:

ssh-copy-id user@<ipaddress>

I added the last step as the following error prevented logins:

agent admitted to failure to sign using the key After running ssh-add, i still get the error(agent admitted to failure to sign using the key) but passwordless ssh/scp works. The following is the output of user@localmachine:~$ ssh -vvv remote@

Red Hat / Fedora :: Passwordless Login Using SSH?

Sep 2, 2010

How can I configure ssh to do the passwordless logins between the users in a Linux server?I am using RHEL4.6 version. I have created some users in this server and I would like to login from one user to the other users in the same server without a password prompt by using SSH. I was using rsh for this purpose before, but since it is against our security policy , I have to switch to SSH.I have done the ssh configuration by creating the keys and copying the public keys to the file .ssh/authorized_keys of the other users in the same server.But unfortunately still I am not able to login to other users in the same system WITHOUT a Password.I did the following settings.From user1:

mkdir ~/.ssh
chmod 755 ~/.ssh
/usr/bin/ssh-keygen -t rsa

General :: Passwordless SSH To The Same Host?

Jun 12, 2011

I am trying to run OpenNebula on a set of 2 machines. One of the machines(called host1) must be able to access the others(including itself) with passwordless ssh.Both machines have the same user and use mounted folder from host1 for home directory(exported with NFS). So single key generation should be enough for this configuration - all the machines have access to the same .ssh folder.What I am getting at the end is passwordless ssh from host1 to host2 which is great, but no success from host1 to host1. Host2 to host2 is also OK, host2 to host1 wants password like host1 to host1.Both machines have the same sshd_config and ssh_config files.File permissions required by ssh should be correct since it works for host1 to host2.The only difference(I see) between the machines is that host1 runs nfs service, so host2 has access to the exported folders.

The ssh-keygen is executed on host1authorized_keys has the same public key two times(to authorize access for host1 on host1 and host2).The distro is Scientific Linux 6.0 aand I also use rsa.Something else - no pass ssh with another user from host1 to host1 works, so I suppose the problem comes from this mounted folder.

Ubuntu Security :: Setting Up Public Key For Passwordless Ssh Login

Sep 8, 2010

I can't get this to work on my machines.

So far I have:

1. created a key with ssh-keygen on the server to be logged in to
2. copied the .pub key to my local machine
3. chmod 700 ~/.ssh on both machines
4. chomd 600 ~/.ssh/ic_rsa on the server, and on known_hosts on my local machine
5. added the .pub key to ~/known_hosts on my local machine

my local machine doesn't have an "authorized_keys" file which is what everything is telling me I should append my .pub key to. The only thing that was in my .ssh folder was known_hosts, so I tried that. I also tried making an authorized_hosts file to no avail, changing permissions appropriatly on all files.

Should I/Can I reset ssh in some way? Is there are reason I don't have an authorized_keys file or is my known_hosts file my authorized_keys file?

Would it be better just to uninstall/reinstall ssh?

General :: Achieve Passwordless CVS Updates?

Aug 19, 2011

I'm working on some code from my computer at home and would like to do CVS updates to a remote server. When I'm at work I don't need to type in a password, but at home each time I need to type in my password each time I do a CVS update. I've followed the instructions here on how to set up a passwordless public/private ssh key pair: [URL].. However, after that I still need to type in my ssh password each time I do CVS update (or anything CVS related) from my local computer.

Server :: Passwordless Ssh Stopped Working?

Aug 18, 2011

There are a few threads about this but none seem to me.I have 3 machines setup with a nfs home directory on machine 1.I have created keys using ssh-keygen -t rsa (and left everything blank), then as user on machine 1 run

cat id_rsa.pub >> authorized_keys2
chmod 644 ~/.ssh/*

this used to work until I upgraded to ubuntu 11.04 (from 9.04), and now it requires a password to ssh. I have tried several times deleting ~/.ssh/* and recreating, to no luck Below is the results when I try to ssh into -2 from -1:


(dumb question, but shouldn't the offered RSA public key be id_rsa.pub rather than id_rsa?)

Ubuntu Security :: Resolving An Account Password With Pam-script When Using Passwordless SSH? Possible?

Oct 6, 2010

I'm trying to configure a process triggered by an SVN post-commit hook which will log into a different host and carry out an SVN update on a file path on that host before exiting. An earlier attempt mounted the remote filepath on the SVN host using sshfs and performed the update locally. This worked but it was incredibly slow (minutes to complete an SVN update).

So, Plan B was to set-up a passwordless login for the user the script runs as and then use pam-script to script a checkout from a repository using the same credentials. The problem is, passwordless SSH login using private/public keys appears to bypass the PAM authentication system or at least interact with it in a way that no environment variables (including the SSH user's name and pass) are resolved by the authentication script being used by pam-script.

I've tested the pam-script behaviour for normal log-ins and it exposes these variables fine. This leaves me in a Catch-22 with trying to script access on one host to perform actions on another while avoiding user/pass prompts or the need to store plaintext passwords on the remote host.

Anyone know if there's a way to resolve a user account password via PAM when using passwordless SSH or, another approach I could take to perform scripted tasks on the remote system requiring authentication? Ideally without storing the passwords on the remote system (at least in unencrypted form).

General :: Passwordless Ssh From System (root) Script?

Jun 14, 2010

What's the easiest way to have a system script (running as root) execute remote commands over ssh? I've written some scripts that execute commands remotely via ssh, and they work great when I run them as myself, as I've set up ssh-agent and keys for passwordless login. I'd like to call these when my laptop docks and undocks. I've been successful at running arbitrary scripts when docking/undocking, but since the ACPI event scripts run as root, trying to run my ssh script fails during authentication.

I tried using sudo with the -u and -i flags to simulate running the script as my user, e.g.: sudo -u redmoskito -i /home/redmoskito/bin/remote_command which successfully finds my private key and tries to use it, but the ssh-agent credentials are still missing, so it still needs my passphrase.

Networking :: Passwordless SFTP Between Unix Box And Windows?

Mar 29, 2010

I have to establish password SFTP between one Unix box and Windows in which certain files will be pushed from unix to windows server. Our client is insisting on using TurboFTP on Windows for ssh daemon to run. There are two components in TurboFTO- client and server.

1. I need help if I need to install both. As far as my knowledge with this software is considered, I dont think TurboFTP client to be running as the server componoent will itself run sshd.

2. Also, when I try to add server in TurboFTP server console, it provides me two options - local and remote server types. Local uses 3830 port by default and uses ip If I use Remote server type which uses 3839 and I dont know what ip address to provide. I need help whether I shud go ahead with local server or remote server.

My doubt is if I consider local server type then whether my Unix box will be able to recognize if thie windows machine (which is also naving network specific ip address) has sshd running because windows has local server type enabled which uses

Ubuntu Servers :: Get Sobdomains To Work Fine On A Test Mache, But Domain/site To Work Due To Lack Of DNS Support At The Moment?

Feb 6, 2011

I'm not to sure this is the place I should post this, but couldn't find any place for it to fit. So here is the deal..I am running 10.10 with the standard LAMP setup. I am running a drupal 7 site no problems. What I need to do is run a multi site sub directory. (domain.com/newsite). So far the best I can do is get a directory index of the second site (domain.com/newsite), but cant run the installer. (I did the symbolic link to the doc root of the drupal install.)If I type in the url domain.com/newsite/install.php I get not found. I placed an index.html test page and it renders fine. I think I'm close but just not there yet.

Any ideas from anyone? I can get Sobdomains to work fine on a test mache, but sadly I need the domain/site to work due to lack of DNS support at the moment. I tried to get some info from the drupal forum, but everything always points to subdomin setups. I also posted over there, but it seems like the forums have very little support and are a bit on the slow side.

Software :: Bash Processing For Listing Passwordless Users?

May 14, 2009

I was asked to list passwordless or locked accounts in a fedora system. As far as I know, fedora or RH dont allow passwordless accounts (the system locks the account Edit: ... unless you set passwd -d :-P ), so I might show info about locked accounts.

I am totally aware that I could do a grep or an awk searching for "!!" or "", but my people is asking me to check against passwd -S (which prints info of accounts). The thing, is that in Solaris you can check with passwd -a -s all the users, but in Linux I couldnt find anything similar. what approach do you reccomend for passing, say , the list of users ( like the output of awk searching only user names) to the command passwd -S one by one?

CentOS 5 Networking :: Comfortable User Managment With Passwordless Ssh?

Jan 27, 2011

we are running a small cluster (CentOS 5.5) for research in fluid dynamics, using OpenFOAM and Fluent togehter with Sun Grid Engine. For these programs, ssh without password prompt in console is required. So far, I did the method described here: [URL]... with keys distributed at each node. However, imagine a new users needs to be created:

1. Creating user at every node.
2. Create key at every node
3. Distribute key to every node

Makes password prompt threetimes, for 50 nodes - quite a lot. The students dont like that really much, me neither. What I am asking for is any help to make this more comfortable. I am not really a system admin, but more a researcher with some knowledge in admin tasks. Actually, I would like to use a ldap authetication, were passwords are stored centrally. When the user first logs in to a machine, the home directory should be created. I think I can manage it to work.

Ubuntu Servers :: No Servers Work Unless Logged In?

I have the system setup and working, but I want to put it in a corner and forget about it. Problem is, nothing starts running unless I'm logged in. And if I log out, everything stops again.It's running a LAMP server and has VNC and SSH servers as well. I want all of that to start without having to log in. That way I can remote reboot without worries and connect and login with either VNC or SSH.Everything seems to have an entry in /etc/init.dIs the way it's acting normal behavior? It's a fresh install, then I installed everything I needed from the repos.

CentOS 5 :: Passwordless Ssh Login From Windows - Uploaded The Generated File Id_rsa.pub To Server

Aug 22, 2009

I have an rsync server and am now setting up cwrsync on my windows machine. I want to be able to run cwrsync over ssh with public private keys. I followed a tutorial over here to set this up. It, however, still prompts me for server password and works only if I provide the password. For some reason the public/private key process is not working.

- I generated a key using the command: ssh-keygen -t rsa -N '' (I verified the key gets generated on my Windows machine)

- I uploaded the generated file id_rsa.pub to server /root/.ssh/authorized_keys

I am also prompted for a password if from command prompt I run this command to log into server: ssh -i c:docume~1user.sshid_rsa root@<server_ip_address> On server I have changed the configuration file (/etc/ssh/ssh_config) to say:

RSAAuthentication yes
PubkeyAuthentication yes

I then restarted the sshd service, however, to no avail.

Ubuntu Servers :: Installing 10.04 From USB Will Not Work

Jul 23, 2010

What is wrong with the Ubuntu installer? I am trying to install 10.04 Server from either a USB CD-ROM or a USB memory stick and no matter what I try (and I've tried every trick I've been able to find so far). I regularly install other OS's using these methods without any problems or workarounds required. Why is the Ubuntu installer so screwed up?

When I try to install from USB CDROM the installer boots, asks me all those keyboard questions, and dies at "Detect and mount CD-ROM". It askes me if I want to load CD-ROM drivers from removable media I've even tried various things such as using the command prompt to manually copy the iso to /root/ and mount the iso to install from... no dice.

So next I tried using the Universal USB Installer tool as outlined at http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download The USB stick is created and it will also boot up the installer as expected. This method stops at the same point as the USB CD-CDROM. Other than rip open the server and hack in an ide/sata CDROM drive (there's no room for one), what does one have to do to make this work?

Ubuntu Servers :: Can't Get Wake On LAN To Work

Aug 3, 2010

Is there any special steps that must be taken in the OS to enable my web server to power on from the LAN? I've never used this feature before and would like to just shove my web server in a corner some where and have 100% remote control from my main PC.
