Anyway, we've complied with all the installation requirements for PJ (http://www.cs.rit.edu/~ark/pj/doc/edu/rit/pj/cluster/package-summary.html middle of page) except for the following:
|Furthermore, it must be possible to do an SSH remote login from the frontend processor to each backend processor without the user having to type a password. This is done using public key authentication. SSH must have public key authentication enabled. Each user must set up SSH public and private keys in his or her account. For further information, refer to the SSH documentation.|
I have sshd running, but I don't have any experience with "public key authentication." Anyone out there have any suggestions or tips for this?

OK, I figured it out. I simply started sshd and created a login on each PC with the same userid and passwd. I logged into each and issued the following commandline:
|ssh-keygen -t rsa|
This created a file called id_rsa.pub in the hidden .ssh folder of each user's home dir. Then I scp'ed these files to each machine (with diff filenames) to cut and past one large file calledauthorized_keys2 and that's it! I can now ssh to and from each PC using that userid and no passwd. In fact, as I was logged into each PC with the same userid, I don't think I even need the userid to ssh or fish!

Also, I can simply fish://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - no need for a userid or passwd as long as I'm using the same userid on each PC.
You just have to have the one userid in common on all PCs, sshd running and the correct authorized_keys2 file on each home dir. Just log into one with a passwd normally, then fish or ssh away to your heart's content without userids or passwds!
HTH Some1 even though my application may be a bit unusual,
PS: any1 else out there setting up linux clusters?
