Sometimes you may do something to mess up these permissions, like transferring your keys to another machine – as I did. Run the following to fix most permissions problems. You may have to do this on both the remote host and local host.

chmod 600 ~/.ssh/id_rsa
chmod 644 ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub

Call me a technologist or whatever you choose. I’m a conversation starter with a deep routed idea of technology for the better. I’m confronting at times and I’m peaceful without smoking a joint.
