Hi All, I'm on Fedora Core 5. I followed the RSYNC "How-To" by Falko, and setup my users and keys on two different servers. Now, when I get to the last step, I am asked for a password for the user at the site I am trying to mirror. I searched around the forum, and found a couple possible answers: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6224&page=2&highlight=rsync+asks+password I used an idea from a user suggested on the second page. He/She suggested putting a comma after the final "pty" in the "command..." programming that is added to "authorized keys". Also, this user suggested putting the "ssh...[key]" on its own line. I did this as well... When I returned to attempt another automatic transfer, I was asked for a password again... Here is the output of my command request, from the "mirror" server attempting to automatically login into my main server: ** Note, I specified a different folder for the backup on the mirror server on purpose, noted below as "rsyncbm" ** Note, the keys were generated using 1024 bits, not 2048, since for some reason Fedora would not allow 2048 creation. Code: [[email protected][email protected][email protected] My guess is that there is a system configuration for authentications?
