I know they do in the Windows version anyway. They have a tool you can use to convert your key into something putty likes. Try to find putty-keygen or something along those lines; perhaps as a separate port. I've had issues like this connecting to my FreeBSD boxes from Windows with putty, but ultimately found a way to import the BSD key into puttys format with their key-generator program. -brian _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
