Cannot login with pubkey

Posted September 27, 2018 549 views

Here are steps what i did for ssh key connection:

generated ssh key, the i checked /User/admin/.ssh/ here i have idrsa, and known_hosts.
I copied to ~/.ssh/authorizedkeys - (I triple checked taht they are the same) (btw i used ssh root@ip)
then i tried to connect to ssh root@ip again. but it doesnt accept the key(password auth method worked after pubkey fail). Ubuntu 18.04.

Try: ssh -vvv -i /User/admin/.ssh/idrsa root@ip

The verbose output will say whether the key matched the pub on the other end.
