    Red face [SOLVED]ssh auto-login only works when im logged in

    Ok, so i have setup auto ssh login for my server.
    And it works, but only when i have a active connection.

    if i use "ssh server.com" it asks for my password.
    If i then open a new terminal and issue "ssh server.com" it logs right in.

    I really don*t understand whats wrong.

    I have tried setting up 2 virtual machines on my local computer and with the same setup it works fine.

    Any ideas?

    SOLVED:
    my home folder was encrypted, so when no users were logged in the home folder was unmounted
