For some reason I must not see the obvious with this problem:
I am trying to set up a system that would allow scp (secure copy)
without prompting for a password. So I set up a ~/.shosts file in the
user's home directory on the server that contains:
If I understand things right then a user with this user name on a client
machine should be able to connect to this server for ssh sessions or scp
transfers without being prompted for a password. However no matter how
I turn it I still get a password prompt. Even if I try this with only
one machine (server = client).
What am I missing here?
