Suppose you're on a relatively secure Linux box and receive the following message when trying to ssh out interactively (no keys) :
- Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive).
Here's one possible solution :
Check the /etc/ssh/ssh_config (client ssh) file and see if it contains this :
- PasswordAuthentication no
If so, change it to the following :
- PasswordAuthentication yes
Now try your interactive ssh session -- you shouldn't need to restart a service or anything else.
Of course, you need to be careful with what you're doing as you're increasing the risk profile of your machine a bit.
