I wanted to try out Rstudio server but I am having problems with the authentication. I am able to successfully connect from localhost to remote server (with Rstudio server on it) using ssh and trafficing the remote 8787 port to my localhost:1277.
But I am not able to connect with username & password I am using on the remote server. I also tried to create a new user (via useradd) but the problem persists
Error: Incorrect or invalid username/password.
The userid should be in the required range. Also the users have their home directory.
The etc/pam.d/login looks like this:
#%PAM-1.0 auth [user_unknown=ignore success=ok ignore=ignore default=bad] pam_securetty.so auth substack system-auth auth include postlogin account required pam_nologin.so account include system-auth password include system-auth # pam_selinux.so close should be the first session rule session required pam_selinux.so close session required pam_loginuid.so session optional pam_console.so # pam_selinux.so open should only be followed by sessions to be executed in the user context session required pam_selinux.so open session required pam_namespace.so session optional pam_keyinit.so force revoke session include system-auth session include postlogin -session optional pam_ck_connector.so
I have copied it to etc/pam.d/rstudio per instruction.
The pamtester is not available in the free version of RStudio Server.
