Flashing a 10 GBit NIC: Aquantia AQC107

Checking the current version:
$ ethtool -i enp3s0

driver: atlantic
version: 5.4.0-49-generic-kern
firmware-version: 3.0.33
bus-info: 0000:03:00.0
supports-statistics: yes
supports-test: no
supports-eeprom-access: no
supports-register-dump: yes
supports-priv-flags: no

I had some difficulties to locate firmware and Linux flash tool, here is my local copy: atlflashupdate-1.8.0_AQC107-FW-3.1.109.tgz (FW 3.1.109, flash tool 1.8.0 for x64). The official one might be here (Windows).

Flashing new firmware: $ sudo ./atlflashupdate

ssh: Too many authentication failures

SSHing to a remote host and get Too many authentication failures?

Perhaps beause you have a number of private keys (in .ssh, in your keychain, forwarded by your ssh agent) that all are tried and thus exceed the number of authentication tries (configurable via MaxAuthTries server-side). All you want is type the damn password.

Solution: ssh -o PubkeyAuthentication=no host
