SSH Issue


I am running Ubuntu 16 and I am not sure how I add key into putty this is the steps I have taken:

once I log out and run putty again it complains that I have no key.. Do I have to add something to putty?

root:
adduser dummy

usermod -aG sudo dummy

login to dummy
ssh-keygen

ssh-copy-id dummy@myserverip address

chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config

PasswordAuthentication no

sudo systemctl reload sshd

ssh dummy@myserverip able to login to ssh but once I end putty I can't

putty? Why are you using putty on a Linux system?

Also, you gave commands but didn't specify on which computer those commands were being run.

It looks like you logged into the server and created keys but installed them on the server itself instead of the windows client.

Here are the steps to create a saved session and keys using PuTTY.

How dumb was I; lol.

The only thing I did wrong was I didn't put the key on one line. I disabled root and password as well in the ssh_config file that should be done correct?

Better double check where you made the changes.

The server configuration is in sshd_config, with a 'd'. Usually that resolves to /etc/ssh/sshd_config

The client configuration is in ssh_config, without a 'd'. Usually that resolves to ~/.ssh/config
