JeeshOfOne Posted March 5, 2012 Share Posted March 5, 2012 Maybe I'm doing something wrong (it's most likely me) but I am unable to ssh from the pineapple mk4 into any computer running openssh using key authentication. However, I can ssh with a password. What I am doing in more detail: 1. With dropbear for creating the ssh keys 1. create dropbear key a. dropbearkey -t rsa -f id_rsa b. copy printed public key to a remote machines authorized_key file 2. ssh -i id_rsa will@<ip-of-server> a. just asks for the password auth 2. Using openssh on a separate machine to create the key pair 1. create the key a. ssh-keygen then specify a local location for the files b. scp the files to the pineapple c. place id_rsa in /root/.ssh/id_rsa d. copy id_rsa.pub into remote aut_keys file and replace hostname 2. ssh -i /root/.ssh/id_rsa will@<ip-of-server> a. command returns: "ssh: Exited: String too long" could anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?
