Server refused our key UBUNTU
After spending the last two hours working on this issue, I though it would be a good idea to post a solution.
Most online tutorials only refer to ssh_config instead of sshd_config. Ubuntu SSH has two config files: ssh_config and sshd_config #cd /etc/ssh/ reveals the following:
I was making my changes to ssh_config but the active config file is sshd_config.
Do not forget to reload ssh after changing the sshd_config file.
sudo service reload ssh
If it is still not working :
Move your key to a different location.
Now why in the blue world do we have two SSH config files in UBUNTU.
