I have a private key inside /home/myuser/.ssh/privateKey
I have a problem connecting to the ssh server, because i always get:
Permission denied (publickey).
I tried to debug the problem and i find that ssh is reading wrong file, take a look at the output:
[damiano@Damiano-PC .ssh]$ ssh -v root@vps1 OpenSSH_5.8p2, OpenSSL 1.0.0g-fips 18 Jan 2012 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: Applying options for vps1 debug1: Applying options for * debug1: Connecting to 18.104.22.168 [22.214.171.124] port 2000. debug1: Connection established. debug1: identity file /home/damiano/.ssh/id_rsa type -1 debug1: identity file /home/damiano/.ssh/id_rsa-cert type -1 debug1: identity file /home/damiano/.ssh/id_dsa type -1 debug1: identity file /home/damiano/.ssh/id_dsa-cert type -1 debug1: Remote protocol version 2.0, remote software version OpenSSH_5.8p1 Debian-7ubuntu1 debug1: match: OpenSSH_5.8p1 Debian-7ubuntu1 pat OpenSSH* debug1: Enabling compatibility mode for protocol 2.0 debug1: Local version string SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.8 debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT sent debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT received debug1: kex: server->client aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: kex: client->server aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REQUEST(1024<1024<8192) sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_GROUP debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_INIT sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REPLY debug1: Server host key: RSA 74:8f:87:fe:b8:25:85:02:d4:b6:5e:03:08:d0:9f:4e debug1: Host '[126.96.36.199]:2000' is known and matches the RSA host key. debug1: Found key in /home/damiano/.ssh/known_hosts:1 debug1: ssh_rsa_verify: signature correct debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS received debug1: Roaming not allowed by server debug1: SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_REQUEST sent debug1: SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_ACCEPT received debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey debug1: Next authentication method: publickey debug1: Trying private key: /home/damiano/.ssh/id_rsa debug1: Trying private key: /home/damiano/.ssh/id_dsa debug1: No more authentication methods to try.
as you can see ssh is trying to read:
/home/damiano/.ssh/id_rsa but i don't have this file, i named it differently. How could I tell to SSH to use the correct private key file?
