During my experiments with VPS (11.10 x86) I meet some problem with remote access to my machine.
After installing the system, I'm able to login via Putty from Windows machine (default account with root privileges) with password.
In next step I've created new user:
After that I've tried to login via ssh:
and everything works correctly (so password is correct).
In situation when I'm trying to access my machine as
gsa user (from Putty@Windows) I receive
Some extra info:
ssh -vv firstname.lastname@example.org . . debug2: we did not send a packet, disable method debug1: Next authentication method: publickey debug1: Trying private key: /root/.ssh/id_rsa debug1: Trying private key: /root/.ssh/id_dsa debug1: Trying private key: /root/.ssh/id_ecdsa debug2: we did not send a packet, disable method debug1: Next authentication method: password email@example.com's password: debug2: we sent a password packet, wait for reply debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password Permission denied, please try again.
/etc/ssh/sshd_config, I have placed:
PasswordAuthentication yes AllowUsers gsa
Do you have any suggestions how can I resolve this problem?
