To disable password auth I've set the following values in my
ChallengeResponseAuthentication no PasswordAuthentication no UsePAM no
When I try to log in with my private key I get
Permission denied (publickey).
If I then change
yes I can login using my private key. Why?
I'm connecting to a Ubuntu 12.04 64bit host from OSX
ssh -i ~/.ssh/deploy -l deploy localhost -p 2222 -v
here's the verbose
