A quick way to test whether the settings are correct is to try to SSH to it from a hosted Cloud9 workspace. If you get any errors, or SSH asks for a password, that means that the setup isn’t correct and Cloud9 won’t be able to connect to your machine.
Things that commonly go wrong:
- The SSH key (available here) wasn’t added to the remote machine’s
- The authorized_keys file’s permissions are incorrect.
- Firewalls that need to whitelist Cloud9 IPs (write in to email@example.com to ask for those)
Other than this, please use the
ssh -v command to see what the server is saying and why it’s rejecting and I can take a closer look.
