SSH using public key

I've got SSH working into the module ok, using the cipher config adjustment and username "ovms" and password.


However, setting the public key in the module (via web shell) as per the docs just doesn't work - I'm still asked for the password:

config set ssh.keys <user> <public-key>

the denial (I just hit return through the 3 password requests) mentions publickey option first too, ie:

Permission denied (publickey,password).

The public key I've used is in ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub and is the string bounded by ssh-rsa and my username, as per the docs. I've tried adding

HostbasedAuthentication yes

to the ssh config file - no help.

Any ideas?

Did you set the key for your local user name or for user "ovms"? If the latter, do you ssh to the module with "ovms@…"?
