I have a new MacBook Air and have used Migration Assistant to transfer content to duplicate my old Mac. When I'm trying to connect to my server via SSH, I get "permission denied", even though I know I'm typing the right password. My old Mac is sold and gone so I can't try with the old one.
My server is running Ubuntu, and I'm using this command in the Terminal on my Mac.
This is what I get when typing
bash-3.2# ssh -v gill@xxxxxxxxx OpenSSH_5.6p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8r 8 Feb 2011 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh_config debug1: Applying options for * debug1: Connecting to xxxxxxxx [xxxxxxxx] port 22. debug1: Connection established. debug1: permanently_set_uid: 0/0 debug1: identity file /var/root/.ssh/id_rsa type -1 debug1: identity file /var/root/.ssh/id_rsa-cert type -1 debug1: identity file /var/root/.ssh/id_dsa type -1 debug1: identity file /var/root/.ssh/id_dsa-cert type -1 debug1: Remote protocol version 2.0, remote software version OpenSSH_5.9p1 Debian-5ubuntu1 debug1: match: OpenSSH_5.9p1 Debian-5ubuntu1 pat OpenSSH* debug1: Enabling compatibility mode for protocol 2.0 debug1: Local version string SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.6 debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT sent debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEXINIT received debug1: kex: server->client aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: kex: client->server aes128-ctr hmac-md5 none debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REQUEST(1024<1024<8192) sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_GROUP debug1: SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_INIT sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REPLY debug1: Host 'xxxxxxxx' is known and matches the RSA host key. debug1: Found key in /var/root/.ssh/known_hosts:1 debug1: ssh_rsa_verify: signature correct debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS sent debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS debug1: SSH2_MSG_NEWKEYS received debug1: Roaming not allowed by server debug1: SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_REQUEST sent debug1: SSH2_MSG_SERVICE_ACCEPT received debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,password debug1: Next authentication method: publickey debug1: Trying private key: /var/root/.ssh/id_rsa debug1: Trying private key: /var/root/.ssh/id_dsa debug1: Next authentication method: password gill@xxxxxxx's password: debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,password Permission denied, please try again.
