Does anybody have an idea what wrong am I doing? So short, I've just launched TAILS OS and trying to connect to VPS over openSSH. With command ssh -i /home/amnesia/Persistent/id_rsa root@ But after that Error message comes along..

FATAL: Failed to determine SOCKS server. 
ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

Already tried to surf whole internet to find somebody with familiar issue, but no luck .. Any help would be very appreciated :)

  • Does the following command work with you: ssh -o ProxyCommand='nc -x localhost:9150 %h %p' -i /home/amnesia/Persistent/id_rsa root@ See also tor.stackexchange.com/a/127/88
