Trouble setting up WSL

I have a trial version of WingIDE Pro version 7 running on Windows 10, and I'm trying to set up programming with WSL, by following the instructions at When I entered the command

plink saul@MyNook "mkdir .ssh; chmod 700 .ssh"

I got the error message

FATAL ERROR: No supported authentication methods available (server sent: publickey)

I went over to Ubuntu and made the .ssh directory with the appropriate permissions, but when I entered the next command

plink saul@MyNook "sed -i -e '$a\' .ssh/authorized_keys"

I got the same error message.

Can you tell me how to troubleshoot this? I know that the SSH server is running, but I really don't know anything about PuTTY or SSH. Thanks.
