I am have been working on this all day. Let me give you the scenario at hand. I have putty (latest version) installed on Windows 8.1.

I have dedicated server cPanel/WHM installed 11.44.
I have installed CSF through WHM and configured it.
I have disabled password authentication.
I have created key pairs in whm.
I have changed PermitRootLogin to no.
I added new user in terminal.
I changed port to other than Port 22.
I also added new user to Wheel Group in WHM.

Thats about it and I have included some images and text files of logs and error messages.

Please Help; I'm DYING HERE!!:confused:

Hello :)

If you are logging in as a user, make sure the public key is manually added in the "/home/$username/.ssh/authorized_keys" file.

Thank you.
