Topic "How to use SFTP"

Author Message

I am using WinSCP tool and I am trying to log on to a remote server using SFTP.

I have a private ssh key.

1) How do I assign my private key to log into the SFTP server?
2) I didnt think I needed a username or password if I had a private ssh key..
3) Is there any documentation on how to do this on the site?

Thanks for any help

You still have to specify an username (not a password though).
