I need to ssh into a linux box. The server admin gave me a public and private ssh key. When I'm trying to login with the private key the login times out ("Operation timed out").
I'm using this command to login:
ssh -v -i /path/to/private_key host
What would be the right way to login? Do I need the public key for authentication?
Thanks for any help.
Output of the ssh command:
OpenSSH_5.2p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8l 5 Nov 2009 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh_config debug1: Connecting to <domain> [<ip address>] port 22.
If I'm using telnet to connect it says:
Trying <ip address>... telnet: connect to address <ip address>: Operation timed out telnet: Unable to connect to remote host
