SSHD on Fedora11

Quick tip on getting sshd to accept authorized connections on Fedora 11… I did all the main things but still had problems, those things are:

1. check permissions on your .ssh directory and authorized_keys file

2. make sure /etc/ssh/sshd_config allows authorized_key connections, although this is almost always on by default

And still no luck; it turns out I had to upgrade my key from RSA to DSA!

So, use “ssh-keygen -r dsa” and use the key it provides, that did the trick for me.
