I have been trying to figure out why I can't get SSH working using Remmina SSH client. In an Ubuntu 12.10 environment, I can connect with my server from the command line using openssh server, like this:
ssh -i privatekey.pem username@hostIP
Everything is good using this way.
But now I want to connect a remote desktop session to the same server, but I need to connect through an SSH tunnel. Anyway i have xrdp running on the server and I will connect using RDP through an SSH tunnel, I am using Remmina Remote Desktop program to do this. But first i just wanted to use Remmina SSH to make sure that was working. And it doesn't work! Each time I try to connect I get this error:
SSH public key authentication failed: Public key file doesn't exist
The settings in Remmina for SSH are very simple:
host username indentity file (privatekey.pem)
Does anyone know why SSH works in the command line but fails to work through Remmina? Is it a bug in Remmina? Or am I missing something?
