Some users are encountering the Could Not Create The Java Virtual Machine error when trying to launch an application that is using Java. This particular issue is reported to occur with Minecraft and several other applications that are built around Java.

But at the moment you cannot access SSH from the Internet, only from the local network. To do this, you will need to configure port forwarding so that the router will forward the SSH traffic to the server. How to configure port forwarding depends on your router so I cannot really make a definite guide here; consult the manual or the manufacturer’s website. You should use a port number that’s very high, from 1000 to 65535. Use your public (look at here) IP address or domain name instead of the server’s local address when you want to connect from outside, and specify port number using the option -p.


You should rename the private key so that it’s no longer id_rsa, since it’s not descriptive and the file might get overwritten when you use ssh-keygen later. The challenge now is that you need to keep your private keys, well, private. The usual recommended way is to keep them in the client’s home directory and enable encryption there.

To use this command, we can also list all nodes online days through SSH. Of course, this command can also be used with other parameters.


If the default key name (ID) is not used_ RSA), you need to add-iParameter to specify the name of the corresponding key. Otherwise, because the default private key does not match the user-defined public key in the remote host, you will not be able to authenticate based on the key, and you will be prompted to enter the password again.

Note that you need to do this on all the users you want to login to. Now you can try logging in and it will not ask for password or private key! We can now disable password authentication so that the only the way to login is with private key.


I found this question when trying to answer it myself. After some searching and experimentation, I've found a few other options for this. I'm going to skip the part about distributing keys as an alternative since Matt Simmons covered that. Also, I know there are times when that is not good enough. For example, if you are GitHub and have to store millions of public (click for source) keys against a single user, continuously updating SSH authorized_keys files and keeping them synchronized across potentially dozens to hundreds of edge boxes is not feasible or desirable.

There are other various (probably less tested and trusted) patches out there to add similar functionality. For example there is, openssh-script-auth. You can also find the patch that RedHat used and apply that directly. A quick bout of Googling uncovers and which are based on the RH versions but which have been updated for newer versions of OpenSSH.


My error messages in logs

Debugging the SSH connection failures are always tricky but there are different methods to enable verbose logging and with the additional debug messages it becomes little easier to find the root cause. It is always recommended to disable unwanted SSH authentication methods to reduce auth lookup time and also to avoid such errors.

Double-check your credentials in your server control panel and be sure to copy and paste the information rather than typing it to ensure accuracy. You'd be surprised how easy it is to get two numbers mixed up.


This doesn't really offer much information as to why publickey authentication was being refused. The best information is available on the server. Sshd will log to the AUTH syslog facility, so you can find information where ever that is logged to (in the case of Debian /var/log/auth/).

Secure Shell (better known as SSH) is a cryptographic network protocol which allows users to securely perform a number of network services over an unsecured network. SSH keys provide a more secure way of logging into a server with SSH than using a password alone. While a password can eventually be cracked with a brute force attack, SSH keys are nearly impossible to decipher by brute force alone.


GitHub has not open sourced this patch, to the best of my knowledge, but I know in the past I've come across versions for MySQL and PostgreSQL key lookup. I tried to find them again just now but have not had much luck.

When multiple entries match for a user, they are applied in order. Where there are multiple matches, the last match is used (which is not necessarily the most specific match).


Fixing Broken Pipe Error With SSH Connection

You must know what kind of SSH authentication is allowed and expected. There are 6 different types of SSH authentication methods so which one do you use?

Press enter to create the key pair. If you do not need to encrypt the key pair, you can enter all the way.


Feed for question 'Permission denied to access public ssh key'

If you don't have password authentication enabled, you can change that by clicking on the server in your BitLaunch control panel, selecting "Access", and entering a password. This will reboot your server and reset your password.


Next, we will introduce the theory of SSH Key. SSH is a protocol that helping us to use PuTTY or other tools to remote login to server. Normally we use the SSH command to log into the remote server. Every time we want to log on, we need to manually enter the user ID and password. On Avamar, if we want to log in to the Storage Node from the Utility Node, we need to enter the user ID and password every time. It is very painful and inconvenient. So we figure out how to login to SSH without a password through Avamar's key functionality.

  • Secret free login via key pair
  • After that I generate a ssh key and copied in my beanstalk account
  • SSH Key doesn't work with any GIT repo
  • I tried just copying the *public key* part and prepending 'ssh-rsa' to it but I get the same error on GitHub
  • Both private and public key
  • Feed for question 'OpenSSH with public keys from database'
  • Trying connect SSH get Permission denied
  • Transferring The Generate SSH Public Key To Other Servers
  • Page: 'SSH Key Authorization'

This command should be used first to activate the other command functions. This command will save the private key which needs decryption.

We have to make sure that PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules) is enabled in our config, since it provides the base API to enable Key Authentication. Here's a nice explanation about PAM.


So we figure out how to login to SSH without a password through Avamar's key functionality

The next part would tell you to enter the passphrase for the key, this is optional and you can skip by hitting the enter key. I’ll recommend you give it a passphrase (make sure this is different from your system password) as this is add-on security to the keys. Once you are done, the key would be saved in your selected directory.

Then we can login to any storage node without a password. So, do you know how Avamar uses the Key?


I'll do my first steps with Git. I have a beanstalk-account as well.

Generating a key pair provides you with two long string of characters: a public and a private key. You can place the public key on any server, and then unlock it by connecting to it with a client that already has the private key. When the two match up, the system unlocks without the need for a password. You can increase security even more by protecting the private key with a passphrase.
