I have looked through the docs, followed the guides, but I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I created SSH two keys. One public and one private. They are in the root directory of my macbook. I uploaded the public key in the proper places on the dashboard. I tried running ssh root@ip but got “permission denied” publickey. Then I tried to specify the file using ssh -i /users/name/name-of-private-key userid@ip, but still. still… still… got “permission denied, publickey” This is the first step and I already feel like a failure. Please help. Thank you.
