Dear all,

My Problem: I cannot get authorizedkeys2 working such that I do not need
    to supply a password.

My Configuration: 
    A Linux server with OpenSSH2.9p1 and a fixed IP-Address.
    A Linux client with OpenSSH2.9p1, DHCP based, so altering names, but
    the hostname is set no to be adjusted to the DHCP-address.  So, the
    canonical hostname is not the same as the one which is submitted by 

My question:
    Does anyone know how to solve such a problem -- reading the man
    pages could not lead me to the solution.

Thanks in advance for any help!
