User Account Server Provided by SSH
I basically want to create accounts on a host machine and make them available on an OpenSSH server for clients to login as.
I was wondering if there was a way to have client machines automatically attempt logon using ssh, so usernames from the host would be valid logon attempts.
Is this possible? Or do users have to login to a local account before making an ssh connection?

Hi and welcome
The default pam/sshd_conf/useradd config on a (probably almost any) linux machine should be enough to grant ssh access.
aka: just create a local user with useradd, make sure that sshd is running and this user should be able to login via ssh.You must always face the curtain with a bow.
