Max Private Key Passphrase Length?
Ok, getting a little frustrated right now. I have gone through all the tasks of generating an SSH key several times because the shell keeps crashing on me. I hope somone can explain this.
Here's what I did.
- Generated a private & public key pair
- Also created private key passphrase
- Saved both public and private keys
- Setup PUTTY client exactly as outlined on a post on the DO website
I am able to connect to the IP ...
I get teh prompt to type in a my private key passphrase
I enter it in (no, I'm not fat-fingering it, it's pasted)
When I hit enter, the putty client just quits alltogether. WHAT?
I don't get it!
What's going on?
What's the max private key passphrase length. I have a long passphrase. Would that crash the putty client? Any ideas?
