I'm trying to make SSH connection from Windows 10 (using cwrsync) to an Ubuntu server on Digital Ocean.

I configured the RSA keys both on the client side (windows) and on the server side (ubuntu), but when I run the command ssh -v root @ serverIP, the message Roaming not allowed by server appears and then asks me to log in with the password .

Looking on the internet, the staff says that it is to change the permissions of the /root/.ssh folder to 700 and the /root/.ssh/authorized_keys file to 600, but I have already done that and it has not resolved.

If I disable password login in the sshd_config file, I get the following error message when trying to connect via ssh: Permission denied (publickey).

  • Hard to tell from what you posted. The message about roaming is a red herring and unrelated to your login problem. See superuser.com/questions/825634/… . – Panther Oct 9 '17 at 8:25
  • By default , on the Ubuntu server, you can not log into ssh as root via password. How did you configure your Ubuntu ssh server ? How did you make the keys ? How did you transfer the key between the ubuntu server and windows ? – Panther Oct 9 '17 at 8:26
  • On the client side, windows, or cwrsync, whatever that is, you specify the key ssh -i key_name root@server See help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH/OpenSSH/Keys – Panther Oct 9 '17 at 8:28
  • There are two different problems: first ssh into the machine as root, second make it password-less using RSA keys. Is the first part working? – user334639 Oct 9 '17 at 8:31

I installed the latest version of openSSH on my windows, deleted the user's .ssh folder and generated a new key, after that I was able to connect to the server using SSH without having to enter a password.
