Windows PuTTY – git error – No supported authentication methods

I don’t have this problem when I use git locally on my machine, ONLY when logged in via SSH with PuTTY. FYI my server is using freeSSHd.

Assuming my current directory is my git repository’s local directory…

  • What is the GIT workflow for when 2 developers share a centralized repository between them
  • Angular2 .gitignore
  • Unable to diff files in two separate branches in Git
  • Remove a file from git locally, but not on remote
  • Removing big files from the history/completely removing the history locally and then pushing it to origin
  • What is this editor opened by “git commit --amend” in Windows 10 cmd and how do I use it?
  • The command git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false fetch origin issues the following error:

    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.

  • How is a pathspec supposed to work?
  • in git, how to load commit into worktree and not index
  • Error deploying to Azure through git (bitbucket hosted git repo)
  • Gstatus changed behaviour in vim-fugitive
  • Enforcing user ACL in git by denying only a few folders and allowing all others
  • Have SourceTree detect a rename even if the original file remains
  • One Solution collect form web for “Windows PuTTY – git error – No supported authentication methods”

    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.

    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
