cannot auto login SUSE / FreeBSD with saved password

 
We can use save password function to auto login fedora/centos/redhat servers, however while we use the same method (save password) to login SUSE or FreeBSD server, it will prompt to ask for password. Is it a bug or anything else I need to set?

Open sshd_config file and set PasswordAuthentication to yes.

The line should look like this:

PasswordAuthentication yes

with no pound ('#') symbol in the front.


Restart sshd once you make the change.
