If activation fails due to a mismatch of the keys on the two instances, an error "Handshake information for activation was incorrect" is displayed. You can also find the error message in the logs:

ERROR  info.magnolia.module.exchangetransactional.TransactionalSyndicator 29.11.2013 12:46:50 -- Failed to activate content.
info.magnolia.cms.exchange.ExchangeException: Message received from subscriber: Handshake information for activation was incorrect. Someone attempted to impersonate author instance. Incoming request was from 127.0.0.1
	at info.magnolia.module.activation.BaseSyndicatorImpl.activate(BaseSyndicatorImpl.java:425)
	at info.magnolia.module.exchangetransactional.TransactionalSyndicator$2.run(TransactionalSyndicator.java:175)
	at EDU.oswego.cs.dl.util.concurrent.PooledExecutor$Worker.run(Unknown Source)
	at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:724)

To resolve the issue, generate a new public key and copy it to the public instance.
