hello dear frank B



many many thanks for the quick reply



well i use with two methods

a. putty on suselinux 13.1

b. command line



but - note:  the problem: i need to include the public-key. but how to do that!?




this command is workin;

ssh -p123 -L 8899: vhost@www2.myhost.org

but i get asked for the public key:

(ECDSA) to the list of known hosts. Permission denied (publickey).

well how to add the (public) key -

a either on command line or
b. run the above mentioned code on putty?

dear Frank_B i love to hear from you

many many greetings

Can you show the actual output from the server when you try logging in with a password (-p argument)?


From what you have posted it seems like password authentication isn't allowed, in which case you will need to add your public half of a key (see here for how to generate the key: https://help.github.com/articles/generating-ssh-keys/), but if you can't SSH to it, you can't add your key to the authorised keys file on the server. So do you have any other form of access? Who maintains the server?
