Stumped on how to add root ssh to a second computer.
I set up my droplet on my laptop and everything went smoothly. I now have a desktop and am trying to add the same access there that I have on my laptop. I generated my key and pasted it into DO using Add SSH Key from the control panel.
But when I attempt to ssh as root I get...
The authenticity of host '<MY IP>' can't be established. ECDSA key fingerprint is <MY FINGERPRINT>. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes Warning: Permanently added '<MY IP>' (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts. root@<MY IP>'s password: Permission denied, please try again.
However, when I set up my account initially, I set up a single sudo account. When I attempt to ssh using that sudo account, it works and I am able to connect as expected. I guess I'm expecting to be able to have root access from both of my computers, not one with root and one with sudo. What am I not understanding? Thx.
