SSH Permission Denied
Good evening. I’ve been trying to set up a server that can run a script I bought, specifically the kernel video sharing one. I have been trying to solve this issue for the last couple hours. I have done everything from resetting my server to starting a new one. Basically, I am trying to set up my SSH keys for Ubuntu. When I try to authenticate to the Ubuntu server, I keep getting a message that says: Permission denied (publickey). I have entered my public key correctly, using the guide found on this page. I have even gone so far as to restart my server from scratch and make new keys to use on my new server, still the same error. I use PuttyGen to generate the keys, and then add them both through the operating system and the settings section before the OS. What am I doing wrong? I am using Windows if that makes a difference.
