When when I ssh into my server from windows using putty without using public key authentication I get no indication of a "BREAK IN ATTEMPT" in /var/log/auth.log
However when I use DSA keys and set the appropriate path for the private key in putty:
Private key file for authenticationBrowse...
I am able to ssh into my server with public key authentication, however the /var/log/auth.log adds the following line to the log file
Address 192.168.1.1 maps to dd-wrt, but this does not map back to the address - POSSIBLE BREAK-IN ATTEMPT!
Should this message be expected when I use public key authentication and my private key is on my windows comp/I use putty to ssh?
NOTE: My server and windows computer are both on the same LAN
