I'm having a similar problem (see archived post below) using RSA2
public key auth on an FC4 machine.

I've set UseDNS to off and it still doesn't work:

UseDNS no

Here is the -vvv output:

debug1: Offering agent key: /home/kitamura/.ssh/id_rsa
debug3: send_pubkey_test
debug2: we sent a publickey packet, wait for reply
debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password

If reverse lookups are off, and everything thing else is in place and
has correct permissions, why else would public key auth fail?

This problem has been solved.

The problem was that the Windows SSH Server had reverse DNS lookup
checks turned on, and I had no reverse lookup DNS entry for the test
server (FreeBSD), but did have one for the working server (Linux).

It had nothing to do w/ the OS or OpenSSH version.
