Re: Authenticating with WSL keys (non ppk private keys)?

Thanks for your suggestion.
Will see if more people ask for this.

Authenticating with WSL keys (non ppk private keys)?

I use Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) and SSH tunnel to my VPS with OpenSSH from WSL. I've deleted the Putty and the ppk files as I usually no longer use it in Windows due to having all features in WSL openSSH and as I aspire to have as less as files possible by means of minimalism and having a minimal desktop.

Is it possible to add support in non ppk private keys so that no Pageant is needed to authenticate in each usage of the WinSCP program?
