I've got a machine running Ubuntu in the office.I've got a machine running Mint at home. My goal is to be able to work from home connecting to the office with ssh.
I swear i tried to look for similar errors in the forum but they all were to me different or the solution was weird to me. Please be patient with me.
what i did:
i took my personal home laptop at work to configure it correctly.
purged from both machines ssh
installed them again
tried to ssh from client (personal laptop) to server (work machine) it doesn't work. It seems not able to recognize my password.
stefania@host's password: Permission denied, please try again. stefania@host's password: Permission denied, please try again. stefania@host's password: Permission denied (publickey,password)
tried then to avoid the issue using rsa keys for authentication
ssh-keygen -t rsa on the client
left with no passphrase
ssh-copy-id wouldn't work (with the same password issue -of course-) so i manually generated the authorized_keys file on the server side transferring the client id_rsa.pub with a pendrive and made sure it was chmod 600 and chmod 700 on both ~/.ssh folders.
all the config files (/etc/ssh/ssh_config and /etc/ssh/sshd_config) are untouched and therefore set as default and rsakey authentication is enabled. (Just to make crystal clear i didn't have errors in them i compared both files with the ones by a friend which is actually able to ssh connect and they are the same)
ssh -vvv name@host
(i'll post only the interesting bits)
