    I'm having a problem with SSH keys (they don't work out of the box correct?) I bilieve the error is in my sshd_conf, but if someone could assist me with what settings that should be uncommented that would be helpful.

    Anyways, just some history of what I did so far:

    Generated a passphraseless key within Server(A1). Took the public key (not the private, left the privat on the server itself) and transferred it to a file authorized_keys on Server(B2).

    Chmod that file to 600. Then ran the following command:

    ssh -v -i /root/.ssh/authorized_keys -p 1234

    First I still get asked for a passphrase (which is wierd since it's suppose to be passphraseless), then when I just press enter (to signify that there is no passphrase), I get the following error:

    Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-with-mic).

    So what do I need to get this working?
