unable to connect to remote sftp site using ssh/ssh2 public authentication keys
Posted on 2004-09-26
I am trying to connect to a remote sftp server using public authentication (using private and public keys --dsa)
I am unable to connect and am getting the following error:
debug: Ssh2AuthClient/sshauthc.c:316/ssh_authc_completion_proc: Method 'publickey' disabled.
(the host server ssh version is
ssh: SSH Secure Shell 3.1.0 (non-commercial version) on i686-pc-linux-gnu)
and the remote sftp server version is
(OpenSSH_3.4 NetBSD_Secure_Shell-20030917, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x00906
Btw, I narrowed to error to be on the host server.
because I am able to connect to the remote sftp server from two other linux boxes using public/private keys(found no problem there)
Any inputs will be highly appreciated
