Puttygen authorized_keys openssh

puttygenTo set up SSH access the following is required:

  • Use PuttyGen to create the public/private keys
  • Upload the public key to the remote server*
  • Convert the .ppk file to RSA key pair file supported by OpenSSH
  • Optionally, you can also use Pageant as an SSH Authentication agent.**

* ExpanDrive only supports OpenSSH files, instead of the .ppk files created by PuttyGen. When loading the public key to the remote server, ensure that you copy the public key suitable for pasting into the SSH authorized_keys file. Also, ensure that you load the private key into ExpanDrive in the format supported by OpenSSH.
