This page assumes using PuTTY (see online help) as SSH client. For GUI access to a remote file system use WinSCP. See also SSH package for Maple.

Generating ppk-file

  1. Determine name@host for the remote machine (use ipconfig for Windows and ifconfig for Linux)
  2. Using puttygen utility generate a pair of private and public keys, saving the private key locally and the public key on the remote machine in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file in the following format:
    ssh-rsa HERE_IS_THE_GENERATED_KEY_FOLLOWED_BY_NEWLINE_CHARACTER
  3. Note that PuTTY does not recognize PATH environment variable when looking for a private key, but you can use %HOMEPATH% and similar constructions in Windows batch files
  4. Some programs require OpenSSH format of private key, which can also be created by puttygen utility
