I have make a key.ppk file.
In the session screen i locate the file.
Then login, everything oke, but when i delete the key location, and fill in the password (windows login password) then also login is possible.

I'm not sure if I understand. Logging with the key is definitelly more safe than the password. If you do not want to allow logins with password, you need to disable this on the server.
