    The instruction is extremely clear and correct. But could you provide why we need to set permission of file “authorized_keys file” to 640?

    pulling my hair out! I seem to have no issue logging into my ubuntu 14.04 with the account ‘warren’ on both, but i set this up with a user ‘gituser’ on the server and cannot for the life of me get it to login automatically form warren@local to gituser@server. Any tips would be appreciated.

      What are the access-rights of your .ssh-directories? They should be ‘700’ for each user, if not, ssh refuses pw-less login for security reasons.
