Have a linux box up (mandrake 10). I can ssh into the box as root.  I created a new user (via useradd). This user cannot log in to ssh remotely. It says permission denied.  Does the user have to be in a certain group???

Hi dissolved,
That user probably does not have the .ssh directory correctly setup in their home directory. The easiest way is to log on as them locally and either ssh elsewhere (which creates the directory and a known_hosts file) or create a set of keys. Then the user should be able to connect remotely.
