Cygwin SSH Not Working - Permission denied error

Jump to solution

Our PPM 9.32 is on Window 2012 R2 server. We just installed the most recent Cywin, and went through all the steps to set up the SSH for PPM object migration. But we cannot get the SSH working so the PPM environment check failed. When I tested the SSH command to the current PPM server, I always got the error of "Permission denied" even the password and user account are correct. The account used is a domain account which we used to install the PPM and Cygwin. 
We went through the steps of creating CYGWIN sshd service by running Cygwin ssh-host-config command, also created the pubic and private keys folllowing the PPM Installation and Admin guide.

When we test the SSH from command prompt, we kept getting the error "Permission denied, please try again", after we providede password.

Anybody else had this issue?

Thanks a lot!
