Windows PuTTY – git error – No supported authentication methods

    FATAL ERROR: Disconnected: No supported authentication methods available (server sent: publickey)

    Again, this only happens when I’m logged in via PuTTY and not when I’m in the command prompt when I’m physically at the server.

    pageant.exe is inaccessible to Administrator logged in via SSH even though it’s accessible to Administrator normally. I had to invoke pageant while inside SSH to get it to work; this results in multiple pageant.exe processes 🙁 In the end I ditched freeSSHd for cygwin and now I have another set of problems.
