I believe that PuTTy is SSH2, while Cygwin is OpenSSH. You can convert them using
ssh-keygen -f putty_key -i> openssh_key
Read 8.2.12 of the Putty help file - had no idea there was a format
difference I had to do anything about! Tried what it said to do, use
Conversions: Export to OpenSSH. But that key looks like:
-----BEGIN DSA PRIVATE KEY-----
-----END DSA PRIVATE KEY-----
Whereas all of the lines of my ~/.ssh/authorized_keys files are single,
loooong lines. This doesn't look like it'll work... Tried it. It didn't
Can anybody give me clear, concise but complete end to end instructions
on how to get this to work?
