Question

Is it possible to combine Password and Google Auth code?

Hi,

I tried to set up a combination of password and Google’s PAM but it didn’t work.

Without adding:
‘AuthenticationMethods publickey,password publickey,keyboard-interactive’
to /etc/ssh/sshd_config
I was allowed to login with just the Google Auth code, but wasn’t asked for the password.

With that line added I got 'Permission denied’.

So I guess it’s the 'AuthenticationMethods’ line that is failing (since it specifically includes publickey, which I don’t use). I tried to edit it in various wayd but without success. How should it be written in order to ask for pw and Google Auth code?

Best wishes!
David
