I’m very new to ssh management.
I changed and updated my ssh keys and ran into an issue that I can’t figure out.
I’ve used ssh-copy-id to get my ssh keys to the remote machine.
If I ssh -i, they keys work.
If is ssh user@host, I’m prompted for a password.
using ssh -v,
- I’m seeing ssh supposedly look at my .ssh/config file, then default to the * config.
- ssh then tries a bunch of identities that are not even on my machine (id_rsa, id_dsa, id_ecdsa, id_ed25519, id_xmss)
- none of these keys exist, so I’m not sure where it gets them.
A few additional notes:
- My ./ssh directory only has 4 ssh keys. Since ssh will automatically try the first 5, even if it defaulted to the * config, I would expect the connection to be established with a trusted key.
- For grins, I went ahead and manually configured the host in the config file. It’s still not recognizing it.
gets the following result:

I know I’m missing something simple, but I can’t figure it out. Help is appreciated.
