Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Doesn't matter.
GitHub ties an SSH key to a single account only.

anderson@client -> root@remote -> anderson's-ssh-key@github.com

If forwarding is working, that would work. But I can't even get that far because Ubuntu is blocking forwarding as root.

anderson@client -> nonroot@remote -> anderson's-ssh-key@github.com works fine.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New but that isn't what you posted
And of course key forwarding is nowhere to be found as well:

[root@host1 ~]# ssh -T git@github.com
Permission denied (publickey).

if you are root and try to ssh to git@github.com and forcing no terminal github will see the request as user root@host1 not anderson

try
[root@host1 ~]# ssh -vv -T git@github.com
and see what it is actually doing

New Re: but that isn't what you posted
If I put the private key in root's .ssh directory, the ssh to github.com works. That's not the issue.

When using forwarding the actual user should be immaterial. The problem is that the Ubuntu server is refusing to turn on forwarding when connecting as root.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New never heard of /etc/init/autoforward.conf
Service Setup (Ubuntu)

Under current Ubuntu (10.04) you can create an Upstart job to run the setup script:

$ cat /etc/init/autoforward.conf
# autoforward - automatic SSH forwarding

description "automatic SSH forwarding"

start on runlevel [2345]
stop on runlevel [!2345]

respawn

exec /usr/local/bin/setup-ssh-forwards
It should not be executable. You can start it as follows:

$ sudo initctl start autoforward
autoforward start/running, process 11590

New That's port forwarding, isn't it?
I'm doing agent forwarding.

Hi [elided]! You've successfully authenticated, but GitHub does not provide shell access.


As compared to:

anderson$ ssh root@remotehost

Instead of:
[root@host1 ~]# ssh -T git@github.com

Try:
[root@host1 ~]# ssh -vvv -T git@github.com and look at the error messages.
