ssh root@localost fails

Post by mcheoti » 2017/12/15 15:18:20

HI all!

I am able to connect myself to a server via Certificate, that’s good.
I can do all of the installations but i need especially one thing.
After some problems, i tried to authenticate myself via ssh on the sever, but got the following message.

Code: Select all

ssh root@localhost
Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic)
I am sure it in only one bit, if you have an idea let me know.
Cheers

PermitRootLogin
stanza in /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Another issue is if your "/root" folder and "/root/.ssh" folder have strange permissions.
In my fedora it's:

Code: Select all

dr-xr-x---. 8 root root 4096 17 дек 17,10 /root
drwx------. 2 root root 4096 17 дек 17,10 /root/.ssh
