Question

Paste a SSH key into authorized_keys file?

Posted September 20, 2014 6.8k views

I’m following this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-create-ssh-keys-with-putty-to-connect-to-a-vps, to set up my ssh keys so I can use filezilla. It one point, some ssh keys get pasted into vim. the instructions say os it i, then right-click. When I do that, nothing happens. Any ideas??

I found a “hack” solution, which was to use a program people use to cheat on internet typing games to type out the key.
