Server refused our key

I am trying to connect to a server with a ppk but it prompts the 'server refused my key' error and require a password. Any idea on the cause as the key works in other PSs. Thanks.

Re: Server refused our key

Please attach a full session log files both from the PC, where it works, and the PC, where it does not.

To generate the session log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
