Putty connection error


Hi All,

When I am trying to connect to a remote machine through Putty (using ssh) I am getting following error:

No supported authentication method available, and the terminal session getting aborted automatically.

Could you please help me find a solution for this and what is the reason this problem is occurring.

Thanks a lot,
sir_com

the two parties have no common way to authenticate. this would most likely sound like passwords are disabled and instead are requiring a rsa key which you haven't added to the system. can you try just sshing to the box from a linux platform and see what happens there, maybe with a -v on the command line for more details.
