Question SSH connection establisment.

Hi All,

I am trying to create an ssh connection between 2 servers.
Below are the steps which i have followed.
On server A::
ssh-keygen -t rsa
scp ~/.ssh/ user@B:

Server B ::
cat >> ./.ssh/authorized_keys

But when i tried to connect through ssh i was prompted for password.
Please find my ssh version

OpenSSH_4.3p2, OpenSSL 0.9.8n 24 Mar 2010

Please correct me if there are any mistakes in my method.

You need to chmod 700 your ~/.ssh/ folders, and make sure your home-folders aren't world-readable, writable, executable. ssh will stop them from connecting if anything is wrong with these permissions.

I have changed the permissions of .ssh directory to 700 on both server A and server B. And even changed the permissions of authorized_keys to 700 on server B. But still not able to connect.

What are the permissions on your home directories?

SSH is picky about the permissions of your home directory itself, not just the things inside it. What are the permissions on your home directories?

ls -ld ~/

Please find the permissions
$ ls -ld ~/
drwx------   3 u277084  fnusr         14 Oct  4 03:58 /home/u277084/
