[GLLUG] Fedora SSH Problem

Dear GLLUGers,

I run Fedora 19 at home and Fedora 17 at work.  I use SSH to login at
work from my home machine.  This has worked successfully for over a

Due to refurbishment, my work machine was switched off, moved into
another room, and then restarted.

Now SSH requests my password rather than using the default rsa public
key mechanism.  Nothing has been updated on my work machine as now
Fedora 17 is not supported.  I've looked at the SSH-related files on my
home machine and it appears none of them has been updated since the
move.  Nothing else has changed.

So, can anyone suggest why I get this behavior?  More importantly, what
can I do to restore the old behavior?
