thanks for reply

Hi,
My requirement is like this, i would like to give access to my solaris box from a remote location using SSH login. I had created the username under the solaris server. But for security reason i need to create a passphrase file & send it to the remote user, so that when he tries to login he will use this file.
So i would like to ask you the link which you sent me is for sorting out this issue.

Awaiting for your kind reply.

Regards

Just to clarify, you *do* want password protection, but don't want the SSH client provided user name to be used?

Hi Porter,
Thanks for your reply.
what i need is when a user types the IP address of my server using SSH as his client, it should not ask or see for any passphrase file, instead it should directly ask him the root username & password.

How can i configure this ???
Please help
