<^>Used Putty.gen to create Putty private and public keys. On client system \karpov in \Users\xyz.ssh I have “id_rsa”, “id_rsa.ppk”, “id_rsa.pub”, “known_hosts”.
“id_rsa” contents from private Putty file and “id_rsa.pub” from public Putty file.
When I try to run ssh clientusername@clientsystem@server name, I get "load pubkey “C:\Users\Harmonia12/.ssh/id_rsa” : invalid format thespar@karpov@archon’s password. When I try to type a password, the keyboard is not active–I can’t type into the PowerShell window.
What file has “invalid format”? What is the valid format?
