Basically all I need is for FR to allow authentication off of a respective users's .ssh/.authorized_keys file. So far all I can seem to get going is password authentication. Can anyone let me know if this is even doable?


I'm using OpenSSH-LPK patch. This patch allows to keep public keys in an
LDAP tree. But it has nothing to do with RADIUS.

Hope it helps,
