Subject: Dropbear for Android Error "Permission denied (publickey)"

Hello,

I'm trying to compile a static dropbear for ARM Android according to the set of instructions below 
https://github.com/iMilnb/docs/blob/master/dropbear%2Bsftp-android.md
and the binary has compiled okay but I keep getting the error "Permission denied (publickey)" from the client when trying to connect. I have tried compiling with both the latest dropbear release and the one used in the instructions (2013.58) to no avail. I've tried the usual solution of putting the client's pubkey in the server's 'authorized_keys' file which hasn't worked. It's worth noting only key authentication access works, I've disabled password authentication. I've attached the stdout for server and client too,

Regards,

Rob
