Previous jobs include sysadmin in charge of security related systems at a large bank, and mail servers at a largish ISP, including handling abuse and spam issues.

comment passwordless ssh is not working in CentOS 6.4?
Check the permissions on all directories below .ssh in the tree - none of them can have write permissions other than for owner/root. Also check that the sshd config allows for PubkeyAuthentication. And check the logs (usually /var/log/secure or /var/log/auth.log) for any information.

Please show the output of ls -l ~/.ssh for the account you`re trying with.

comment How can I count all the files on my system from root?
@fraxture If a file name contains a newline character, wc -l will count the name as two lines. You could get around it using find / -type f -printf "%i\n" which will print out the inode instead of the file name.

Although, to be fair, the unixes 99 % of the people posting here use do... :-)

This is useful, but it should be noted that not all unixes implement the proc file systems.
