"Password Authentication" off is more secure, but you want to leave it
on until you have installed all SSH keys that need to be installed.

Yeah, because you do have "Password Authentication" off on the 5208R.
Turn it on briefly and you'll be able to complete that step. Once that
is done, you can turn it off again.

There could be something wrong with that. Usually when you do have an
SSH key present, the key is also shown on the GUI page.

Please send a support ticket via the GUI and be sure to tick the
checkbox "allow access" so that I can take a look.
