I currently am using WinSCP (.NET) to perform a secure copy (SCP) of files between a Windows 2012 and Linux Server.

I would like to use the same service to perform a secure copy (SCP) between two Windows 2012 servers.

On the Windows to Linux server setup we used PuttyGen to create the private/public keys, and then we installed the public key on the Linux server. I am somewhat baffled on how to install the PuttyGen public key on the Windows server that would have files pushed/pulled to/from it.

Can someone please point me to documentation that would demystify this process, or if I'm headed down the wrong path tell me the best practice for what I am attempting?

First, you need to choose an SSH server for the Windows server. There's no SSH server in Windows natively.

Then you need to follow the server-specific procedure to setup the key.
