Dear CD

I'm able to connect using putty, but when I use identical credentials, I get failed "Failed login. Exhausted available authentification modes..."

It's exactly the same credentials.

username is "root"
SSH Private key "..ppk" file

Its all exactly the same - driving me mad!

Kind regards

Ben Heaton

I'm an idiot! :-)

I was uploading the private key in ".ppk" file. Once co9nverted to OpenSSH i was able to login.

Thanks for a great product.

Kind regards
