I successfully ssh-ed to my Ubuntu machine from a PC through both local and over the internet. However, I got no luck with my Mac. I followed all the steps for SSH key gen and configuration and tried to ssh through both local and over the internet but no matter what I try I keep getting the same error message Permission denied.
