I found the new position for the key detail. The problem I am hitting is that when I browse to the .ppk key it says that the key couldn't be found or wasn't in a recognisable format. Clearly it's the latter but it hasn't been a problem before and if I selct ignore then it works. What is ignore doing is it just ignoring the alert and saying use anyway?
Thanks for your report.
So when exactly do you get the alert? After you click Open
on Select private key file window? What is your key like? Can you generate new key of the same format (and test that you get the same alert using it) and attache it here (or send it to me)?
You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile.
And yes, the Ignore
says "ignore the alert and use the key anyway". But that should not work if the key is in wrong format. So there's something wrong. Ignoring the alert may make a sense, e.g. when you specify a path to a key file that does not exist yet, but you plan to create it later.
