Hallo ikarus9999,

Somehow i cannot disable the SSH password, (i need to access the Kobo per SSH without password)

whenever i set a password, then i can access the device per both telnet & ssh with the password, and whenever i remove the password with the command:
sed /^root/s/.*:root:/root::0:0:root:/ /etc/passwd
I cannot access the device at all !
I copy the backed-up passwd file and put it in KoboRoot.tgz (in etc), then i can access the telnet without a password and ssh needs password which i dont know! (went back to the start)

I'm a bit confused here!

what i need is to disable the password so i can access the device with ssh without entering any password.

I would appreciate any help with it.
