SSH Authentication Failed

Lukáš Galuška June 13, 2019


I have been serching for solution of this problem, but I don't find something helpful. This problem is here for like 5 years and still doesn't have a solution.

The problem appears randomly (for example I use sourcetree for 1 hour without problem - switching branches, pushing, pulling... -, then I want to switch the branch and boom, error). After PC restart everything works fine.  


I have already tried generating new ssh keys, that solved my problem for like 2 weeks. It's really exhausting to restart pc or generate new keys.

I am on version

Is there anything I am doing wrong?

Thanks for your help.

Have you tried switching to using PuTTY/Plink for SSH rather than OpenSSH? You can change it by going to "Options > General > SSH Client". I've found PuTTY to be more stable on Windows and easier to use as well.
