amazon ec2 instance access
i'm a bit confused. finally accessed an aim instance of netbsd 6 on the
amazon ws platform. usually when a new machine is installed i check the
ssd_config first. so to my surprise i noticed this setting for root:
according to the man for ssd_config:
"If this option is set to ``without-password'', password authentication
is disabled for root."
yet still when trying to ssh in as root i can not get access. why is that?
i did try changing it to:
but then the awesome thing amazon has - some java virtual console - to
access the instance via a pem key is not working anymore... which i
guess it makes sense. but how is that with a without-password setting in
sshd_config i can't get in?!
