I try sftp with batch file "-b' option and it fails with Permission denied though entry exists in known_hosts.
authorized_keys is not setup.But as per the configuration, I expect password authentication to continue..this is not happening.
Could you help here to identify for the reason?

Re: Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive).

Hi

This is because your user doesn't have the their own keys shared in the '~/.ssh/authorized_keys' file.

If you read through your config, you'll see that you've got "PasswordAuthentication no".

This means, no matter what, you won't be asked for a password.

Re: Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive).

I removed the comment for PasswordAuthentication in sshd_config, restart the sshd and checked again.The password is prompted in the first case but when I use a batch file, it is not prompted.I dont understnad why?

The connection is successful if I set authorized_keys.But I need the password to be prompted incase for machines which do not have the keys set in authorized_keys.
That is -
My script will check for public key first.If it does not exist, it would check for password prompt.

Re: Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive).

Hi,

If you see the sftp manpage, it states that sftp -b can only be used in conjunction with non-interactive authentication. This is why you are not prompted for a password when you use sftp in batch mode.

Re: Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive).

Hi ,

 

Add the below line in your config file : /opt/ssh/etc/sshd_config 

 

========

UsePAM yes
==========

 

After that restart the ssh daemon and that should resolve your issue .
