I created a VM via Bitnami in Google Compute Engine. Previously, I was able to ssh via the Bitnami web interface. I tried to ssh via terminal on my Mac but kept getting the
Permission denied (publickey) error. I then deleted all keys on the server and my Mac and downloaded the pem file form bitnami and used
-i option to connect but still the problem persists.
ssh -i bitnami-gce.pem firstname.lastname@example.org -v

I am unable to ssh to the host. So can't send any keys to server now. How to resolve this?
Edit: I tried to ssh via Google web console and I could do it. Can anyone tell me the exact steps to ssh from anywhere? I prefer the simple username and password way, how to configure it that way?
