      After a frustrating (hugely) night, I have finally cracked it on my setup... this is a stupid error but you cannot have world permissions set on at least the authorized_keys* files, and possibly on the local ./ssh/identity|rsa|dsa pubkeys.
      easy way to test this- on the intended system to log into, add to sshd_conf file the option StrictMode no .
      if this fixes it (try both ssh -1 and ssh -2 in case you have either protocol setup screwed up), then you should only have to remove the world readable permission.
      Good luck with it... I'm still struggling with it, but this at least got it to work for protocol 1.

        FROM HOME WHILE LOGGED IN AS MYSELF 'craig', I GENERATE SOME KEY PAIR:

        ssh-keygen -t dsa

        THEN I BECOME ROOT AND COPY MY KEYS TO MY ROOT ACCOUNT ALSO

        su -
        cd /var/root/.ssh
        cp ~craig/.ssh/id* .

        THEN I TRY MY PORT FORWARDING TO WORK MAIL SERVER, I CHANGED THE HOST NAME

        sudo ssh -2 -L 25:localhost:25 craig@work.example.com

        THE RESULT:
        surprisingly it no longer requires me to enter my root password for PORT FORWARDING on a PRIVILEDGED PORT.

        is this a security violoation.
        it always asked me for my root password prior to even trying to do port forwarding.

    i have had the same problems, it worried me the whole day, one way was doing ok, the other way was asking my password.

    But now it is fixed. My problem where the permissions of my home folder, .ssh folder and the content of the .ssh folder.
    I did a (i can be wrong, if so corrent me but i dont know the default permissions of the home folder so i took 755)

    change the rights of EVERY file in my homefolder, this is done with the -R flag. It might be nicer if you dont use it at all and type (chmod 755 /Users/USERNAME/)
    $ chmod -R 755 /Users/USERNAME/

    change the permissions of the .ssh folder
    < code >$ chmod 700 ~/.ssh

    change the permissions of the .ssh folders content
    < code >$ chmod 600 ~/.ssh/*

    good luck.
