Did you check, that the key was added to the authorized_keys file in one singleton line? It is a common copy-and-paste problem, that the key is broken up into several lines.

I think we came to an end guessing around. Please post your configuration, version numbers, used OS, etc. - all things necessary for evaluating your problem.

I suggest you post the "document you prepared" here instead of asking for private email addresses. First, because this way many (instead of one) could help you and second, because the point of this forum is to build a knowledge base: anyone, having a similar problem like you, could search this board and check if your problem is related to his problem. This would not be possible if some of the vital information about your problem would be missing.

I hope this helps.

thanks everyone for their suggestions, actually the problem got resolved by changing the permission.

bash-3.2$ ls -ld bravodba
drwxrwxrwx  26 bravodba dba           67 Aug 19 08:24 bravodba
bash-3.2$ chmod 755 bravodba

thanks all

Your home directory? Yes, that's some relevant permissions often forgotten. Glad you got it working.
