Get ssh key from linux machine to windows to use filezilla on windows?

Posted December 3, 2014 1.9k views

I created the ssh key on linux and would like to use it to access my server on windows using filezilla. Is this possible?

Do I copy the idrsa and files from linux to windows (using usb)?
If so, do I have to change the permissions? Because when I try and copy them to a usb it won’t let me.

Once they are on my windows machine what do I have to do to get it working in filezilla?

You will need to copy over your private key to Windows and then you can import it into Filezilla. Filezilla provides some documentation on how to do this that can be found here.
