How do you use an existing private and public key for a site in WinSCP without generating a file? I was given the code for the private and public keys for a site we use in LastPass, but they are not saved to a file. I've tried converting them to a .ppk file and loading them in WinSCP, but I get errors every time. Can I not just input the keys without loading into a file?
