Using keyboard-interactive authentication

how can i fix this problem, i can't login my account, any help?--Jarallah II (talk) 14:13, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

"keyboard-interactive authentication" is what ssh calls asking for a password. This generally means that your ssh client does not have a private key loaded or that the private key has been rejected by the server. The steps in Generating a key pair describe one way to create a public/private key pair and upload the public key to wikitech. I haven't used putty for a long time so I'm having a hard time remembering how to configure it to always use the private key when logging into a particular host. There should be good tutorials on setting that up elsewhere. --BryanDavis (talk) 14:59, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
