To be clear, the sole administrator account on machine A that I am
logging in with has a user name of 'User', and the sole administrative
account on machine B that I am logging in with has a user name of
'Owner'. I have correctly set up the rsa keys for me@client on both
of these hosts. The different account names are the way that these
machines (purchased at different times) were set up by the vendor. I
don't know if there any other subtle differences.
Also, on machine A I must mount additional disk drives every time I
remotely log in by adding "net use" statements in to the
.bash_profile. However, on machine B on the second and subsequent
remote log in after a reboot the disk will already be mounted and I
will get an error message "The local device name is already in use".
What do you mean by sshd impersonation?
