Re: F-Secure client talking to OpenSSH server

Look into ssh-keygen for OpenSSH. It has key format conversion functions.
You need to reformat the public key from SECSH format to the OpenSSH format.

-e This option will read a private or public OpenSSH key file and
print the key in a `SECSH Public Key File Format' to stdout.
This option allows exporting keys for use by several commercial
SSH implementations.

-i This option will read an unencrypted private (or public) key file
in SSH2-compatible format and print an OpenSSH compatible private
(or public) key to stdout. ssh-keygen also reads the `SECSH
Public Key File Format'. This option allows importing keys from
several commercial SSH implementations.

Then once converted, you need to append it to the authorized_keys file.

I have put the public key from the client into the server's $HOME/.ssh
directory, but OpenSSH does not recognize it:

Any hints ?


And, did Guloka think the Ulus were too ugly to save?
