The public key file looks like the above (except PUBLIC instead of PRIVATE). But the private key looks totally different no matter what option I choose in puttygen. It starts like this: PuTTY-User-Key-File-2: ssh-rsa Encryption: none Comment: rsa-key-20020108 Public-Lines: 4 AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAABJQAAAIEAhvimnaAyWt9ZdjgXvy8xuSfHOhomC2tSCeS6 ME6AbjAfDcyE+htDV17d5Sni4iXP0+lyDhigGcogujXid0AtkOXfjJfocuDJHhu0 n04z5fz7YueFBKjsosN4nhdpbmbCXfUtQXAfDrsfq/Dm1ee22cXg0YBHl6xlgpkU rungwTE= Private-Lines: 8 and is followed by my private key and a 'Private-MAC' line. I tried manually creating a private key file looking like my public key file and like what you said. But that didn't work either. Greetings, Martijn Laan
