ssh root@server 'Permission denied (publickey)'
SSH authentication works and happens automatically when I log into my server with Putty. However, when I run ssh root@server or ssh new_user@server, after following the tutorial on adding a new user and giving it root permissions, I get ‘permission denied (publickey)’. Should I worry about this, are either of my users secure?
