I see from
that we are having the same problem with running MS compilers in
a password-less ssh session.  Have you found any solution to this?
In my case using a password is not acceptable because we are
trying to automate the build to run unattended.

The only potential solution I have seen is (read the whole thread and look up its references; unfortunately there is no single "summary" link with info on the subauth patch), but I have not tried it myself. Please keep us updated if it works for you.

Hmm, mine only rarely give me such problems. For some odd reason, however, any time a particular friend comes over, they are VERY interested in *his* shoelaces. Go figure.

Setting up another sshd server on an alternate port run as a regular user with normal network privileges may be a poor man's alternative in this case. You will need to ssh in as that user and provide the password but it should work. Note - I haven't tested this myself. ;-)
