I have completed a few of these boxes practicing and while doing so I have come across ssh more than a few times. Recently I came across a box that requires me to know a little more about SSH than I do. Edit So I was able to get ssh working using keys and I am left with another question. Does SSh disable logging in with a ssh key if the permissions are set say open?
-rw------- vs -rwxrw----
I can understand why you would but I don't know if thats something specifically set by the server admin or just part of SSH in general. Any thoughts?
