How can I ssh access on my second computer (ubuntu)? Permission denied (publickey)
I have a ssh access via terminal on my mac working fine. Lately I got another computer (Ubuntu 20 Linux). I am trying to set up ssh access, but it just does not let me in, saying “Permission denied (publickey)”.
I added my ssh pub key (id_rsa.pub) on my local computer(Ubuntu) to the Digital Ocean (settings -> security). But, it does not fix the issue.
I also pasted the pub key in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys in the droplet.
What do I need to do to ssh access on my local ubuntu machine?
FYI: I can set password login by changing PasswordAuthentication yes in /etc/ssh/sshd_config in the droplet. However, this is not ssh access without password.
