    SSH password authentication is disabled by default for some server providers, including Amazon EC2 and Google Compute Engine. That is, bubble shooter public key authentication is the sole method available for SSH logins.

    You have set up your realm.properties file and created two options in the Rundeck GUI: option.someUsername and shell shockers option.sshPassword1. The shell command you are running in a job is "ssh ${option.someUsername}@hostname 'ls'". However, when running the job, you are receiving an error stating that the SSH password is not set up correctly. You have checked the logs and confirmed that the password is not being recognized correctly.

    Double-check that you are providing the correct values for the option. some username bitlife and option.sshPassword1 when you run the job. Ensure there are no typos or discrepancies.

    SSH (secure socket shell) is a protocol that allows users to connect to a remote Mini Crossword computer. Its acronym also refers to the protocol's tools and utilities. All Linux and Macintosh operating systems have a default SSH software.
