    That's what I needed! And it works!

    Now I have my Puttygen generated RSA keypair, and exported the priv
    key in both OpenSSH and SSH.com formats. Then I uploaded the priv
    OpenSSH key to the server, deriving the public key with "ssh-keygen -y
    -f opensshkey.priv". This derivation is also needed for the SSH.com to
    work with this key (at least on the 3.2 version, cause it asks for the
    public key when trying to import), which can be done through
    "ssh-keygen2 -D sshcomkey.priv".

    Thanks everyone for helping me. Special thanks to Albert...

    I think this was a good thread for the list archives.

    Cya!
