I have setup PublicKeyAuthentication as per the instructions here
It seems its authenticating but the connection to the remote computer closing immediately. For example if I use scp, the log says it's authenticated but no actual file transfer occured. I successfully transfered using password authentication.
I have provided the log below. Could someone help me with this as I am stuck now.
