I have a server that supports SSH Key-Auth login. I've made my key-pairs, uploaded them... etc. In short, it works--in Windows. I made the key-pair using Putty's key maker (PuttyGen IIRC) on my Windows XP box, however on my Linux box I can't "unlock" the key.
- Permissions are set to 700 on the key file.
- The password is correct, I'm 100% sure of it.
- I'm running the command "
ssh -i mykey.ppk firstname.lastname@example.org" with obvious substitutions made.
- The key is in my
- The error is "
Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-with-mic)."
The only thing I can think of is that it must be something between Linux and Windows. I've tried e-mailing myself the key file, directly copying it from my other HDD to this one, having another person email it to me from their Linux installation... it just won't work. This is the -only- thing preventing me from using Linux full-time for coding (something I really want to do!) so any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
