Troubleshooting VM connections

This page will give a number of workarounds for known issues when connecting to the BIOS Virtual Machine.
If you run into problems that are not mentioned below, and manage to solve them, feel free to add them to the list.

Connecting via Putty

Issue: Server rejects connection with "Permission denied (publickey)".
Troubleshoot: Check if private key is properly selected under Connection -> SSH -> Auth. Check if you are using the correct key pair and verify that keys are actually proper pair using Puttygen.

Issue: Server rejects connection with "Disconnected: No supported authentication methods available (server sent: publickey)".
Troubleshoot: Check if private key is properly selected under Connection -> SSH -> Auth. Other possible method is to load private key into Pageant and to enable attempt authentication using Pageant under Connection -> SSH -> Auth.
Troubleshoot 2: If this didn't solve the problem, possible firewall issue, contact Leon Mei for further troubleshooting.

Connecting via MobaXterm

Connecting via x2go

Issue: Connection asks for key passphrase even if key does not need one.
Troubleshoot: Remove key selection and use "Try auto login (via SSH Agent or default SSH key)" while running Pageant with your private key imported.
