    unable to make a transparent connection from non root user


      I am trying to make a transparent connection from a non-root user and I am having permission denied when trying to generate ssh keys, as per below:

      $ ssh-keygen -t rsa
      Generating public/private rsa key pair.
      Enter file in which to save the key (/global/xnode/taprap/.ssh/id_rsa):
      Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
      Enter same passphrase again:
      open /global/xnode/taprap/.ssh/id_rsa failed: Permission denied.
      Saving the key failed: /global/xnode/taprap/.ssh/id_rsa.

      Its working fine as root user, but not for any other user.

      Please can you help
