I'm learning ssh and I'm just starting the basics like "ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
" from a client computer to login into my fedora server. When I try to login though, the connection requires a password and so I assumed I needed to use my root password but this did not work. I also used my non-root user login password and that did not work. Is there a password in the ssh_config file I need to create? I do not see the field for it. My configuration is so far default.
Everytime I search this problem I keep finding info on how to remove password authentication but that is not what I want!
