Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2014-10-17 16:38:30 CEST
SSH will complain to the log about the key being insecure and refusing to use it. But the error the user will get is "You are not authorized to connect to this server". We should present the actual error.

Comment 6 Pierre Ossman cendio 2019-04-01 11:17:42 CEST
Works fine on Linux, but not on Windows. The client gladly proceeds even with a file that cannot be opened.
Comment 8 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2019-04-08 15:07:18 CEST
Fixed. Tested on Windows 10 and Fedora 29.
Comment 13 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2019-04-08 15:54:00 CEST
There were some additional errors in the committed code that has been fixed now.
Comment 14 Pierre Ossman cendio 2019-04-10 12:40:58 CEST
Works well on both Linux and Windows now. Also checked release notes.
Comment 15 Pierre Ossman cendio 2019-05-17 11:14:42 CEST
We didn't test the most important test, that a fully working key actually works with ThinLinc. And that is currently broken. I.e. it's completely impossible to use public keys with ThinLinc right now.
Comment 17 Samuel Mannehed cendio 2019-05-17 15:58:27 CEST
Fixed now.
Comment 18 Pierre Ossman cendio 2019-05-21 15:09:53 CEST
Much better. :)

I've tested: 

 * Successful login
 * Unreadable key
 * Missing key
