Niall, I love your mails, they always crack me up :)
Question about ssh. I normally have a drive that runs suse 7.3 and various stuff. I was testing some stuff so I replaced it with a new install of, mandrake someversion or other and reconfigured everything like before -> so I could still get to the net/mp3's an stuff.
Obviously the key is different as its a different "box".
I ssh from one client to the box and it rejects it coz someone is spoofing or so it thinks. It says to delete the key from .ssh and so I do. Actually I just rm -rf .ssh and connect again.
This time it takes ages to connect [20 seconds or so] but it does so after said time. This I find mildly annoying.
Anyone know a solution?
By my reading, not what it's intended to :-) I just mailed Kevin about it -
doubtless he'll reply with a correction, or alternatively point out exactly
why I'm a gobshite. auth's intention was to run ssh-agent iff it hadn't been
run already and add keys. However, auth didn't source .ssh-env when it
didn't run ssh-agent so I'm not sure it would do what one wants. I'm
currently looking at this and I have ssh-agent running from my .xsession but
trying to get a nice neat situation going is a little messy i.e. if a user
logs in via ?dm, I want him to run ssh-agent from .xsession, unless
ssh-agent is already running, in which case I want his session to pick up
the existing values. If he logs in via ssh from another box, then I want him
to start ssh-agent from his shell start script, unless it's already running,
in which case I want him to pick up the values from that. That is proving a
