Trying to use the basic ssh command on ec2 (ubuntu image) but getting a "Permission denied (publickey)" error.
Any tips on what the problem is?
Actually, i tried it on my own ubuntu machine (linux via virtualbox) and got the same error.
I did not see other comments reporting this type of error so not sure what to do next.

you need to initiate the ssh connection on the localhost using the .pem certificate just like you connect to the ec2 server

ssh -f -N -D -i keyfile.pem localhost

(Make sure its access privilege is 0600)
