    I have been working on setting up a server for RSA Authentication to a server...

    I have used Putty Gen to generate a RSA key public and private.
    The public file was loaded to the server to be accessed:
    Code:
    /home/username/.ssh/authorized_keys/id_rsa.pub
    Next I opened Pageant and selected the private key to use during authentication.

    When I open Putty I set it up to go to the server IP and then in SSH -> Auth I have loaded the private key and also checked "Allow Agent Forwarding".

    After allowing PUtty to open the site the CLI opens and requires the user name, but immediately after providing the user name the CLI window closes.

    What should I attempt to gain RSA Authentication access to this server?

    Thanking you in advance for your help

    Best Regards
