I have provided filezilla with my private key that I generated using puttygen. When I was creating the keys I did not create any passwords or passphrases. When I try to connect to my servery from root on port 22 using Filezilla, I keep getting prompt to enter SSH passwords. I tried my root password but to no avail. Why does Filezilla asks for SSH password even though I have provided the private key.
I would appreciate your help.
