I installed openssh as a service with the help of cygwin using this tutorial
I can ssh into localhost from cygwin.
However, when I try to do this from putty, I get a "server refused our key" error.
During the setup process,
id_rsa.pub were generated in the .ssh folder.
I took the
id_rsa file, imported it into puttygen and generated
I created a session in putty to use the private key.
When I try to log in, it prompts me for the username. After I enter my username, I get a "refused our key" error, and it attempts to use password authentication.
I would appreciate any help.
In case it helps, here's an output of a successful SSH to localhost from cygwin
