I'm trying to connect via SSH to a new limited user account using PuTTY from a windows machine. I created the user with
adduser limiteduser, setup a password with
passwd limiteduser, and copied a ssh key in that I created with puttygen. So far in WinSCP I can view the home directory and copy/remove files, but when I try to access the putty shell I get
Using username "limiteduser". Server refused our key
And then a putty window popup that states
"Disconnected: No supported authentication methods available (server sent: publickey)
I can access the site with WinSCP and actually copy files over, so it appears the ssh authentication is working properly.
Do I need to do something else to allow the user to access the shell through putty?
