I am trying to connect my computer to a ssh server (running on Windows 7) using public/private keys.

I have generated the keys and used the necessary permissions for files:

chmod 700 .ssh
chmod 600 authorized_keys

and have also added the public key of my computer to the ssh server's authorized_keys file

Now when I try to connect to the ssh server it disconnects and in the log the error I get is:

fatal: seteuid 1000: Operation not permitted

Edit: Yes I can remotely login with password to ssh server. Another error which I saw was:

we sent a publickey packet, wait for reply
Connection closed by ssh-server
  • Whats the remote OS? Are you able to login remotely with a password?

  • I was asking for the remote OS, not the local one.

  • Hmm - I don't suppose there is anything like a UID in Windows - they use UUIDs.
