Looking in the logs doesn't show anything obvious. Seems like it should be working. I looked quickly at your ssh keys in the database and they looked okay. Since you say you are working from a new machine then I suspect something there. Perhaps permissions. Usually permissions must not be group writable anywhere up the directory tree for example so be sure to check permissions. > Have i forgotten something?

Try this as a simple test. $ ssh stevan_wh...@cvs.savannah.gnu.org hostname You should see: You tried to execute: hostname Sorry, you are not allowed to execute that command. That means things are working. But you might be seeing something else. If so and the reason isn't obvious then try: ssh -v stevan_wh...@cvs.savannah.gnu.org hostname You should see something like (this is from me): debug1: Next authentication method: publickey debug1: Offering public key: RSA SHA256:ny9SZmnnLpUeTcmzt+pVpoxdH39AntZ+8Cb33tmCLzQ /home/rwp/.ssh/id_rsa debug1: Server accepts key: pkalg ssh-rsa blen 279 If you don't then something is wrong with the public key offer. Either permissions or something. Bob
