hi all. im following this great post here titled "Tutorial setup 2MBWE with rsync over the internet" and 1 thing isnt working out for me. i have 2 nas devices…one is MBWE II firmware v01.01.18 w. mionet disabled completely and the other is my etrayz xtreamer nas. ive actually gotten through all the steps but ssh-keygen -b 4096 -N '' -t rsa -f id_rsa is supposed to let me login to the other nas w/o password and vice versa. this is the problem. i can create on etrayz xtreamer and put authorized_keys on MBWE II and can type root@etrayz and it works fine in that it requires no password. when i do the same thing for MBWE II, though, create ssh-keygen -b 4096 -N '' -t rsa -f id_rsa and put authorized_keys on etrayz..when i type root@mybook1 it always prompts for root password. things ive noticed and tried to fix this:
compared versions of ssh:
etrayz: OpenSSH_5.2p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8l 5 Nov 2009 and has random art image output for ssh keygen
WBWEII: OpenSSH_3.9p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7e 25 Oct 2004 and doesn't have random art image for ssh keygen
made sure RSAAuthentication and PasswordAuthentication set to yes
tried upgrading ssh via ipkg install openssh 5.5p1-1 and openssl 0.9.8n-1 on MBWEII. Im not sure how to make sure im actually using 5.5p1-1 though. when i type ssh -V it still says WBWEII: OpenSSH_3.9p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7e 25 Oct 2004 but i do see stuff linked to /opt/etc/openssh/ now but why doesnt it say OpenSSH_5.5p1-1 when i do ssh -V command? sometimes it'll print random art and sometimes it wont now. ive tried so many things im out of ideas right the second. i think it has to do w/ something on the WBMEII side but im not sure what it is. any suggestions?
