hey listers! silly quesion: if I generate an RSA key on an NFS shared home directory, then cat >> it into the .ssh/authorized_keys file in the same location, shouldn't I then be able to ssh into each host that shares the NFS home directory without entering a passphrase (assuming the key doesn't have one)? and assuming the permissions on the authorized_keys file belong to the user with mode 600? thanks! tim -- Here's my RSA Public key: gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 5A4873A9 Share and enjoy!!
