You didn't said anything to help you.
to basically use PuttyGen to generate the key then copy and paste it
into your ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file. I do that but when I try to ssh
in from a remote system using Putty I keep getting prompted for a
password. Does anybody know how to fix/configure this?
What key type you generate?
I tried them all.
How do you save both parts of the key?
Didn't think I had to. IIRC there was a save button. I clicked on that
and saved whatever it saved. I don't recall it saying what part it would
Yes I did assume it would save it somewhere. If you use ssh-keygen it
does save it somewhere (~/.ssh by default). As I said, I don't use putty
so I have no idea how it works. Where am I supposed to save it? How does
putty then later find it and use it?
You said you copied public key, did you saved private key as well?
Or you just assumed it was saved somewhere automatically?

Animal testing is a bad idea - they get nervous and give the wrong answers.
