I am attempting to connect from a Ubuntu 10.04 PC to another Ubuntu 10.04 PC called taylor9 and located at 192.168.0.109. I can do so in a terminal by ssh taylor9 and entering the password manually. When I attempt to create an Secure Shell key within Seahorse I receive the following error
Couldn't configure Secure Shell keys on remote computer.
Received disconnect from 192.168.0.109: 2: Too many authentication failures for ken
I have deleted the key and tried again several times. Same issue. I deleted the key for another computer and recreated it in Seahorse. I noted that the last step in creating the key was for Seahorse to ask me for my password on the remote computer. In the case of creating the key for taylor9 I was NOT asked for my password. Thus when Seahorse attempted to connect to verify my credentials it failed and thus the error message shown above.
So my questions are... where is Seahorse picking up what it thinks is my password for taylor9 and how do I get Seahorse to ask me for the correct passoword?
