Connections fail with error ​Too many Authentication Failures​​ ​

PrivX connects using all the available credentials (such as certificate, public key, and stored credentials). For target users who allow many roles, the OpenSSH ​MaxAuthTries​​ may be exceeded before PrivX offers the correct authentication method.

To fix the error, increase the ​MaxAuthTries​​ in the target-host OpenSSH configuration, reload the target-host OpenSSH server config, then try connecting again.
