How to Generate SSH Key Pair on local machine (my computer)
I’m following this tutorial: digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-14-04
In step four “Add Public Key Authentication” it says “To generate a new key pair, enter the following command at the terminal of your local machine (ie. your computer)”
I enter “ssh-keygen” in my “command prompt” and receive the following error:
‘ssh-keygen’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
What am I doing wrong?
