Hmm.. I set "ForwardAgent yes" in /etc/ssh/ssh_config but that
didn't help.. from this verbose output it looks like the line
saying "Agent admitted failure to authenticate using the key"
is the root of the problem..
Warning: identity keysize mismatch: actual 1023, announced 1024
debug: Trying RSA authentication via agent with '[EMAIL PROTECTED]'
debug: Received RSA challenge from server.
Agent admitted failure to authenticate using the key.
Authentication agent failed to decrypt challenge.
debug: Sending response to RSA challenge.
debug: Remote: Wrong response to RSA authentication challenge.
debug: RSA authentication using agent refused.
Maybe there's a problem with ssh-agent?
FYI- here's what I'm doing
1. On machine A (3.4-REL): "ssh-agent tcsh"
2. On machine A (3.4-REL): "ssh-add" then enter passcode
3. On machine A (3.4-REL): "ssh <machine B>"
4. On machine B (5.0-current): enter password on machine B
5. On machine B (5.0-current): "ssh [EMAIL PROTECTED]"
If I leave out steps #3 and #4 then it works fine as before.
