CoreOS ssh asks for password

March 11, 2016 1.1k views

I'm trying to set up a new coreOS install and when I try to ssh in it asks for the password. Everytime this question is asked the answer is always to use the core user instead of root but I m using core. The command I'm running

ssh core@<droplet ip>

I have another droplet that my ssh keys work with and I added those existing keys when creating my CoreOS droplet.

Thank you for your help,

Hi Greg,

You'll want to make sure that you are using an RSA keypair to log in and not a DSA keypair. That should do the trick.
