Hi

I can connect fine using a password, but I cannot connect when using an openssh public key. I get the following error:

[SSISSFTTask] Error: Error : invaid privatekey: D:\Key\OpenSSHKey

if i try ssh2 format i get this error:

[SSISSFTTask] Error: Error : Authentication failed

I have tried using this key to connect with an ftp client and it works fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi,

Is there an workaround/ solution for the issue..? even I am facing a similar issue. I am able to successfully establish a connection and transfer files using a userid password. Also I am able to connect using a SSH Private Key (Encrypted). Is there a way to connect using an Open SSH public key?

I see the tutorials explain the usage of Private key but not public key authentication. Is there a way to connect to sftp using a public ssh key to put/get files.
Please help.
