Subject: When using several ssh key, Git match ssh key by host, instead of hostname in ssh config file.
Date: Thu, 26 Jan 2023 14:46:54 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <OSYP286MB0215D880FA9D82B74E393DD691CF9@OSYP286MB0215.JPNP286.PROD.OUTLOOK.COM> (raw)

I find when I use several ssh keys with the right config file and clone my private repo, git can't match the key by hostname.
I try ssh-add command to add the keys. "ssh -T" can work, but git clone/push/pull these action display "Permission denied (publickey)".
Test in git version with win10 and git version 2.34.1 with Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS
I check the -v and -vvv log, git does read my config file in ~/.ssh.

After I change the repo address to host("github") in my ssh config file, i can clone the repo and push/pull.
Host github
  PreferredAuthentications publickey
  IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa_111
So I change the host to "" in ssh config, everything is back to normal.
  PreferredAuthentications publickey
  IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa_111

 I think when git read ssh config, it uses host to match the key instead of hostname. Is this bug?
