Topic "WinSCP 5.9/Windows 7 Enterprise - Can't find PuTTYgen generated PPK file"

Author Message


Hey all,

I'm trying to connect to a server using paired public-private keys. When I go to Advanced>SSH>Authentication on WinSCP and try to search for the Private Key file generated by PuTTYgen, I can't see it. I know it's in there, because I can see it and load it fine via my PuTTY ssh client, but I don't see it when I navigate to that folder via Windows Explorer. I also can see it in my Virtual Store folder. I think it possibly could be something to do with that, maybe? Any suggestions?
