I now have a requirement to connect to another SFTP site which uses public keys. I generated such a key on my client using PuTTYgen (RSA/2048) with no passphrase and sent this to the SFTP Server team who loaded it in and gave me back a username/password. The public key file is stored on my desktop.
I put in the IP address of the SFTP Server and the provided username/password but the connection fails (times out). I have instructions from the SFTP Server team but they are based on IPSwitch SFTP client software. In that product you can reference the public key file to use in the connection. I cannot see the ability to do this with WinSCP.
So can you please advise how this is done with WinSCP? Do I explicitly attach the public key file or does it have be stored in a certain place or loaded into the system as you do with certificates?
I am using WinSCP version 5.9.4.
