As I recall, PuTTY uses a different format for keys.. does ".ppk" sound familiar?

Well, you'll need to convert that key to the format used by OpenSSH.. and here's what I've found.


It looks pretty strait forward, obtain the puttygen program.. convert the key.. copy it over to the mac. (With safe permissions.)

Hope that helps.

The easier solution to you quandary is to issu the following series of commands on your osx machine.

Step one
ssh-keygen -t rsa
Step two (upload key to remote host)
scp ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub remoteusername@remotehost  cat id_rsa.pub ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
Google Linux is a Green Horns Best Friend (GHBF).
Windows = a 32 bit extensions to a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a four bit processor written by 2-bit monopolistic software company founded by a .3-bit Harvard Drop out, who can't stand one respectable bit of competition.
If I believe something to be immoral a will not keep quite and let my voice of annoyance be heard loud and clear.

I wrote a small howto about setting up password less ssh access. See http://daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=1758
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
