I installed WinSCP, it offered to copy settings from FileZilla. Presumably it did not copy my existing pkk as connection failed.

This tutorial explains how to enter a pem which will be converted.

Rather than trying to find the original pem is there a way to add the working pkk file that I already have?

Thanks ColinK
