SFTP with private key
tomallen4 - March 17, 2007 - 1:00pm
To access my Linux box at home, I use ssh with passphrase-protected encryption keys. I was able to set up Putty without any difficulty. My private key file (id_rsa.ppk) is on the USB drive in a relative path from the Putty directory.
I've been using WinSCP to transfer files between Windows machines and my home computer. I understand from other posts that WinSCP isn't really free due to the U3 situation, so I'm trying to use FileZilla instead. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to set up SFTP properly with my private key. I think it uses Putty, so I'm not sure what the problem is.
By the way, thanks for PortableApps! Brilliant idea!
