I want to give a user remote access to files in gcs via sftp. I am thinking of doing this by granting access to a folder hosted on a google compute engine vm instance (basically want to setup an ftp server on google cloud).
I followed the steps below:
- Create vm instance (centos7 micro)
- Add username/password in terminal of vm instance
- edit sshd_config file to uncomment "PasswordAuthentication yes"
- In filezilla connect to
sftp:$username@$externalipwith username and password from step 2. No ssh private key supplied
When I do this I receive the following connection error using filezilla :
No supported authentication methods available (server sent: publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic)
