Re: [PLUG] ssh key based authentication

Hi Dan,

Usually when I see these types of problems it stems from the file 
permissions on the .ssh directory and key files.   I usually start 
debugging by logging in as one of the users that is having trouble using 
the keys and trying to Ssh to a server with the -v flag, which will 
almost always show you the problem right off the bat.
