i setup 2 droplets in LON1 with the same SSH key and private network enabled.

I can connect just fine to both of them from kitty via ssh, and all it ask is username (root).

But if i try to scp or ssh from inside one droplet to another, it keeps asking for a password, which i never set.

root@Webapps01:~# ssh 10.20.30.40

Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes

When I have had that happen, the problem has usually been related to permissions on the key.
