Here is my problem when trying to make an ssh connection from an access point to a remote server with key authentification :

ssh -i key user@remote_server
ssh: exited: string too long

What does it mean ?

Best regards.

Try generate keys with dropbearkey

dropbearkey -t rsa -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa

The discussion might have continued from here.
