SSH Public Key failure


I'm on my second generation of key pairs and I still can't get this to work.

My .ssh on the server has the exact info that's in the Export Public Key from the Public Key Properties of the Session options.
Server key is set to correct permissions.

I'm not sure how to generate a log file from the GUI...everything I've tried for that has not generated any log with errors in it.

Server side /var/log/secure doesn't even have the connection attempts in it.

On attempting to open the connection, the tab flashes up and then immediately closes.

Hi sheltomt,

Have you watched our "Public-Key Authentication: SecureCRT to OpenSSH" YouTube video?
What are your results if you actually copy "identity.pub" to your .ssh file on the server?

I just found the issue. I created the pair using defaults, which gave me


I re-created the pair with OpenSSH and everything is working fine

Thank you!
