Re: How to pass session to KITTY, but using SSH-key, not Password-based

There are two ways to configure KiTTY in WinSCP:
1) With use of registry – In this mode all relevant settings, including the key, is transferred to KiTTY.
2) In portable mode – In this mode the key is not transferred. But you can load the key to Pageant to make it available both for WinSCP and PuTTY/KiTTY:

Many thanks, for the case of portable use, I'll look into Pageant docs. Hope it's easy instruction to do.
But why WinSCP doesn't have a simple way to pass the ssh-key location by parameter to PuTTY? So, avoiding the Pageant middleman.
