@vasileios Hi Vasileios. Finishing up some details after my re install of linux mint after my python download debacle. . I am trying to connect my lap top to my vpn server again. Its on linode. I get the ssh error publickey. I looked thru forums here but didnt find what I wanted. I did some research on line and found this at a web sight and ran it
You can save a lot of time by determining why you can’t connect before you proceed. The following command will show you exactly what SSH is doing when you initiate a connection with your VPS server:
ssh -vvv firstname.lastname@example.org
Naturally, you should replace
your.vps.ipwith the relevant IP address, which can be found in your control panel. Note down any output
Once it finished debug steps it came up with no file existed for the ssh key. So it seems when I saved my files before the reinstall, the keys didnt save. I looked thru files too and didnt find them. So now, if I generate new ssh keys, how to I get my servers connected to them? Linode says to just add them and log in with the new key. page link here Not sure if I delete the old key at linode since its not on my computer anymore? what steps do I need to do to set up the connection? I am looking over your file from LMS also; the long one ) and not sure at which point I pick up the process to do that. I set up my vpn server with that tutorial of yours.
