I am trying to rsync some files to another computer using ssh from a cron
job. Aparently it can be done.

I have followed the instructions found at

  ssh-keygen -b 1024 -N ""
  ftp identity.pub to /root/.ssh/authorized.keys
  chmod 600 authorized.keys
  ssh client's_hostname
  This should log you into the client as root without a password.

It always asks for a password?

All guides/howtos say this is how it is done. I can ssh happily no problems
but it always asks for a password. I can rsync happily as long as I enter
the password.

What am I missing?
