Has anyone got this particular 'how to' in the Knowledge Base working for them?

I have followed the instructions particularly carefully and under no circumstances can I get the server to accept the key. I've used Puttygen to generate the key pair and put the public key in the .ssh folder (all this works) and then completed Putty to be able to login with SSH, but the server returns the same comment every time, 'server refused our key'

I see from a Google search that this affects a lot of other people, but cannot find a definitive answer as to how to make it work.

If anyone can help, I would be much obliged, as at the moment I'm.

David

Hi David,

Got a buncha questions, sorry if some of them seem obvious.

How did you add your pub key to your ~/.ssh/authorizedkeys2?
Did you copy/paste in a vim session via ssh or use FTP?
If you uploaded your pub key via FTP, did you transfer it using ascii or binary?

Can you paste the contents of your authorizedkeys2 on your VPS box.

FInally can you turn on full logging on Putty and paste the contents of the failed session?
