Windows - Failed to connect to the host via ssh

Hi there,

I am trying to deploy to google compute engine VM. I am following the instructions as stated but keep getting the same error message.

I am running the ansible-playbook server.yml -e env=staging

Failed to connect to the host via ssh: Connection closed by 35.24X.X.XX port
22

fatal: [35.24X.XX.XX]: UNREACHABLE! => {“changed”: false, “unreachable”: true}

I have uploaded my public ssh key and the ansible set up is connecting to my private key so I am reallly confused.

Any help would be a life save.

Hi @Jack_Churchill, if you SSH into the server and run ssh -T git@github.com, what does it return?

Sorry for the late reply

Permanently added the RSA host key for IP address ‘140.82.118.3’ to the list of known hosts.

git@github.com: Permission denied (publickey).

This may indicate that your private key is not being forwarded. Check the docs here for what to do, notably the last section.
