You need to use ssh and/or sftp from the terminal.

ssh username at bioinformatics.org

and use your password to access.  That will connect you to the machine, then go into the .ssh directory (it is hidden, use "ls -a" to see it), edit the authorized_keys file and cut/paste in your public key.

If you did it right then, logout and do another ssh and it should not ask for password.
