So I have been trying every which way to get into my Server '08 box via SSH. I have tried FreeSSHD and Cygwin. Everything works fine when I am using simple SHA pass authentication, but the moment I try and use keys, the following occurs:
- id_rsa key is recognized
- the passphrase is accepted
- but then a request for the user password returns a "permission denied" error
Terminal out below:
