comment How to use SSH Public Key with PuTTY to connect to a Linux machine
@VishnuPrasadKallummel - AFAICT, the two keys are identical (up to line wrap).

@CristianCiupitu - are you suggesting that '700' and '600' for dir and keys-file are a maximum requirement? SSH should fail because it is world available??? Anyway, I made the change but still no sucess.

Please note that this is a corporate Linux machine, and I cannot create a new user. Just play with my account.

@CristianCiupitu - I am using Red-Hat. I changed the permissions to 777 but it does not solve the problem.

Tried `ssh-keygen` instead of PuTTYgen.

comment How to use SSH Public Key with PuTTY to connect to a Linux machine
Thanks. So, I used scp to copy the public key to the remote machine. There, I used ssh-keygen -if puttygen.pub.key > ~/.ssh/authorized_keys and made sure directory and file have read permission. But, when running PuTTY and selecting the private key, I still get the same response from the Linux account. I did not get PuTTY's key-caching message (could be that it was there on the 1st time I used that key). I assume that sftp used in your answer if not critical, right? I also noticed that you have a ~/.ssh/known_hosts file. Is this essential for the process?

comment Caps Lock key not working in VMware Player
Thanks. The page you link to seems to deal with the "Fusion" product, not the free "Player". I can't locate that "Send Key" menu in my Player.
