I have an Amazon EC2 instance running Ubuntu 10.04.
I created my new user with
sudo useradd -d /some/path new_user.
Using the new_user, I created a new rsa key, using
ssh-keygen -t rsa in the
I combined the files to generate the authorized_keys file:
cat .ssh/id*.pub > .ssh/authorized_keys
So, I generated a ppk file with Filezilla and successfully connected to it.
But, one day after, I tried to connect again (with this ppk generated and my new_user), but it doesn't work.
I tried to recreate a new rsa key, just like before, but it still doesn't connect.
Wondering if there was a problem with the new_user created, I created another one (new_user2) and its rsa key. Again, it doesn't work.
At login time server says 'server refused our key' and no supported authentication method available popup.
The ec2-user named ubuntu (default user) works ok.
Does anyone know what could be happening?
I used this tutorial as reference.
I still tried to use this another one, but I came across the same issue.
Below is my putty.log file after this issue:
=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~= PuTTY log 2013.08.22 09:39:08 =~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~= login as: new_user Server refused our key
Thanks in advance.
