Permission denied when trying to ssh into AWS instances

Hi, I’m having troubles to reach the linux salve machines on a spotfleet. We are running putty in windows, all the auth settings are there (DashKey/agent forwarding turned on/etc). I can connect to the gateway just fine, but from there when I try to ssh to one of the slaves I get:

Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic).

Any suggestions on how to avoid this error ?

thank you.

Could be that you’ve forgotten to tick a box somewhere, you can double check if you’re set up right here in our docs.

Thanks Justin, the problem was really simple and not AWS related. I forgot to run Pageant with the dashKey loaded, so putty was not able to forward the ssh agent to the instances.

The number of times I’ve done the same thing! Glad it’s working.
