Re: ssh version 3.4p1-1and RSA authentification (2)

Hi everybody,

I forgetted to say that the /home directory is the same for all nodes. I 
means that the ~/.ssh directory is also the same...

Should copy all the keys (in fact all the /etc/ssh directory) on all nodes?
Or is it possible to specify the pub keys (and also an authorized_keys) 
somwhere in /etc/ssh so that resources are shared for all users of the 

Thanks very much for your help...
