I looked at all other posts that are similar. I'm probably missing something simple since I'm relatively new to this.
I have an Amazon-EC2 instance with Amazon Linux. I'm using Cygwin on Windows 7.
I access this instance regularly from my mac perfectly fine, so I assume everything on the linux machine is fine?
I do this:
ssh -l ec2-user -v -i perlykey.pem firstname.lastname@example.org
And this is what I get:

Any clues as to what I'm doing wrong?
