Finally figured out how to get ssh logins working on Sveasoft's satori firmware, one of the last free releases. After enabling SSH and telnet via the HTTP interface, login as root via telnet, and then:

cat >> /tmp/.ssh/authorized_keys

And in another window,

cat ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub

Or whatever your public key is named, of course. Then paste the key from window two into window one. Hit <ENTER> in window one, then control-D. Logout of your telnet session and log back in via ssh:

ssh -l root

Nothing very difficult, but I never tried very hard before because the download was listed as not having sshd, if I remember right. Now that Sveasoft's firmware is no longer free, I have lost interest in it. I don't blame the guy for wanting to make a living, but he's gonna have to make it without my contribution.
