ERROR : Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive).

Hello,
when I try to connect to a remote machine through SSH username@host I am getting the error message
Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive).

Can any one tell me what is the problem. the key is added in the remote machines authorized_keys file.
# 2  
Do you use ssh -i key?
# 3  
No.
The steps i have followed are
1) generated the key with "ssh-keygen -b 2048 -t rsa" in the client machine
2)public key was added in the servers authorized_keys file.
3) tried to connect to the system with ssh user@host
4) then the system throws an error "Permission denied (publickey,keyboard-interactive)."

But with the same server i have setup another public private key pairing for another user say user1 couple of weeks back. which is working fine . So could you tell me what can be the reason with this user. ?
# 4  
Hi
There will be some identify file exist in the remote system. u need to add user name in that file then only it's possible to connect.
# 5  
is it in known_hosts file ?
Is the error is coming becuase the user is not recognized in the remote machine ?
# 6  
same problem over here

I think my problem is identical to deepusunil. I have two computers node0 and node1 and I want to access node1 from node0. I have password-less public key access with root but for a second user it doesn't work.

I tried a lot of things already and I searched a lot on the internet, e.g. I followed the troubleshooting steps in Password-less logins with OpenSSH and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ad...roubleshooting. I am running out of ideas. I recreated and copied keys many times over using ssh-copy-id or manual paste/append to node1:~/.ssh/authorized_keys. Still I cannot login with the non-root user. I hope somebody can give me a hint.

For sure, I created and copied key files (for both root and other user) on node0 with:
[root|user]> ssh-keygen -t rsa
[root|user]> ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub node1


I use the same configurations for root and user in node0:/etc/ssh/ssh_config (no config file in ~/.ssh) and (obviously the same) node1:/etc/sshd_config. For sure, I made files in ~user/.ssh/ and /root/.ssh to have same permissions.

On node1, I allowed reading for everybody: (just to make sure)
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1956 2008-08-29 19:29 ssh_config
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3667 2008-10-10 20:50 sshd_config

I'll append the verbose (debug with -vvv) output from ssh...

What does it mean "Not a RSA1 key file /home/user/.ssh/id_rsa?"
