however it's really different. My problem occurs earlier in the process.

I try to log in with ssh passwordless into a server that I've set up. sshd
is running there. I can log in with password.
When I set up the crypto (ssh-keygen -t ecdsa) and install the pub key at
the host, I can't login anymore, not by defaulting to password either.

How did you configure ssh? Did you run ssh-user-config?
Does it work with the default rsa key?


yes, I configured with ssh-user-config
No, it does not work with RSA keys either.
After a renewed ssh-user-config on the host side, the debug looks the same
(except ecdsa -> rsa)
ssh -vvv -i .ssh/ me@server
see debug output at

When I've seen this before on this list, it's because you are in a domain and your user is a domain user. If that's the case, you want to create a domain account to run your sshd server or use a local user to ssh in with. If this doesn't describe your situation, I'd recommend adding debug flags to your sshd server so that you can see a full log of things on that side of the fence. Typically this is very illuminating for server-side issues.
