First of all I would like to know in Ubuntu 12.04 how ssh authenticates key (like which files are referred for the public key).
Say for an example I have a user name gitolite I want to provide SSH access without password authentication while doing a
pull or any remote action. I have generated keys
id_rsa.pub from Windows 7 machine and I have Ubuntu 12.04 LTS as Git server. I tried to copy contents of
authorized_keys file (location
/etc/home/gitolite/.ssh as well as
/home/gitolite/.ssh/). But still when I am trying to
pull the file from the server it asks me to enter password for gitolite.
