View Full Version : [SOLVED] SSH key transfer problem

June 9th, 2011, 03:00 AM
Recently migrated to Xubuntu 11.04 and everything is now working as I hoped for except SSH.
I have the original id_rsa file which was generated on my old CentOS 5.x machine and copied it into my home directory (into .ssh). Somehow it looks like it can't find the key when I try to SSH into my remote server using exactly the same inputs. Do I somehow have to register the old SSH keys with the SSH which was installed by default??
I checked the properties of directory and file and I have full access to them.



Problem was not SSH but Gnome Commander which didn't pass through the acceptance of the remote credentials. After running
ssh -p <port> <user>@<host>
and accepting them it was stored in known hosts and Gnome commander could handle it..........
