I did the following on a Windows Server 2008 R2: Installed OpenSSH 0.0.24.0 by executing this command ->
powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File install-sshd.ps1
and generated the keys with
and corrected the permissions by executing these scripts:
Before that I created a .ssh directory in C:\Users\myUser\ and in it the authorized_keys file.
Then I generated a key pair (RSA 2048) on my local Windows 10 machine by using puttygen. I copied the public key content to the previously mentionend authorized_keys. The content looks like this:
ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAABJQAAAQEAhKWSd69VFVmzIqSvMMKN57F2lRuHrkuUB0Oij5V3IGVm4AP5kQkiQYW5vkDuEsc7/JPo1Yc/5900g49Y0QwRNu1Xn7NvpgFK1W/6z9QJ91/tGQbecsU38PkqBNEN4+uTLsoTRyPNyptjdb/0Bh4Dndu3WZ1111111111111111ZF3B/D7L+jDDXfcHW1G94Xh/c8dbChMp1rwmTBwkTnEKENA5O1chIMXosgQbR3QIEw6Y7P8/Lye1u5oxsyxQiCPTRRtLsNL1Ay6wRxXWCI+wmpSRUWPdNLY+DjdCvxvpUQFyuEVYqf7XFQuyeM3ZWg53JTPQVt4ONEAjj56wIUGQ== rsa-key-20181009
So it's one line and should be correct.
Now I'm trying to login using putty. Host -> 192.168.... port 22 and under Connection->SSH->Auth I gave it my private key location -> C:\Users\myUser\Desktop\rsa_private.ppk
When I'm now opening the connection and enter 'myUser' as user it looks like this:
Authenticating with public key "rsa-key-20181009" Passphrase for key "rsa-key-20181009": Server refused public-key signature despite accepting key!

And at this point I don't know what to do... Does the log file tells me where the error is?
