I'm using a new system and
ssh is ignoring my
ssh-agent. Note I've been doing this for years elsewhere, it is not a new thing I am confused about. With
> echo $SSH_AGENT_PID 1234 > echo $SSH_AUTH_SOCK /tmp/ssh-foo/agent.1234 > ps -p 1234 PID TTY TIME CMD 1234 pts/12 00:00:01 ssh-agent
So, ssh-agent is clearly running and the appropriate environment variables are in place. I've also verified the socket is actually there.
> ssh-add key Enter passphrase for key: [done] Identity successfully added. > ssh-add -l 1024 SHA256:[blah] key
So the key has been added. But:
> ssh -i key me@there Enter passphrase for key:
/etc/ssh/ssh_config with one from my previous system (!#$% upgrading...) and they are identical. According to the distro (fedora 23) package meta-info this one is openSSH version 7.1p1, previous installs I've used are no newer than 6.6.
The problem doesn't exist for all users, leading me to believe it might be some new security feature. Does anyone know what's up?
