Unable to ssh using identity keys

Hi all, i am trying to ssh into a remote server without password, i tried the command with the verbose command 'ssh -v -l user1'
OpenSSH_3.6.1p2, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090701f

debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password
debug1: Next authentication method: password

i have already copied the public key(id_dsa.pub) to both authorized_keys and authorized_keys2.what could be the problem?

On the remote server, i am seeing this error
Authentication refused: bad ownership or modes for directory /home/user1

Hi all, problem resolved. The home directory permission was set incorrectly.
