public ssh key

#1 Post by gordonisnz » 2015-03-31 04:47

hello.

I want to login to a FTP site that needs a SSH / public ssh key. i've used this in the past on a LINUX machine but now on a WIN 8 machine with Filezilla

https://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Howto

From my various searches - I have found this wiki page entitled "HOWTO" (how to what ? - it may need to be renamed to a better page name).

A few questions:-

- Where do i save my public / private keys ? does that matter ?

- how do i import/use the public/private keys (which one ?)

- Also, is there an example of how to log into a website using this method (step by step..)

Store the private key in a private place no other person has access to. The public key you can store everywhere and broadcast to the world if you wish.

You can import the key into FileZilla (Settings). Alternatively you can use Pageant from the PuTTY suite.
