 If SSH doesn't work
Author: Ernie Dunbar

I keep running into this problem when I set up ssh authorized keys. It turns out that for some machines (not necessarily architechtures or operating systems) need to have sshd set up to force ssh version 2 before authorized keys will work. I tested this very thoroughly, and it's the only way it will work on some of the machines on my network. I asked around, and found a few people with the same issue, and a couple people that knew other people who had the same problem.

You need to change sshd_config to use 'Protocol 2' instead of the usual 'Protocol 2,1'
